Course Overview

This seminar reviews the major effects that property transactions have on VAT, and it clearly illustrates the procedures and controls to be implemented to comply with the requirements. It demonstrates when particular property transactions should be treated as exempt and when they should be zero-rated, reduced-rated or standard-rated. It will also highlight for you the many pitfalls that can be avoided if proper consideration is given to the VAT implications before you commit your organisation to a contract that involves property transactions.
