Introduction to VAT

Tuesday, 24 Apr 2018, 10:00 - 14:30


Baffled by VAT? Don’t be – our half-day course (with lunch) will give you the insight and knowledge you need to minimise irrecoverable VAT and how to budget for what can’t be recovered.

Like any organisation, charities are subject to VAT. Unlike them though, we undertake activities which can be exempt or out of scope, meaning that VAT cannot be reclaimed on purchases. However exemptions may be available if your charity meets certain conditions.

For many of us, raising income through trading activities has become an increasingly-important source of revenue. But restrictions do apply, and you may still be liable for tax depending on the nature and level of activity.

Who should attend:

This course is ideal for anyone working in charity finance who needs a better understanding of how VAT works for charities, along with Trustees who want an overview of VAT as it applies to charities

This course is run in partnership with
