Course Overview

Many UK businesses supply services to customers outside the UK. Equally, they may receive services from overseas suppliers. The rules which apply to the treatment of VAT in these situations are complex.  This half-day seminar clearly explains how to account for the VAT on these services - using illustrative examples throughout.

If you also deal with goods, you may be interested in our full day course, The Essential Guide to UK VAT and International Trade.
