UK VAT and International Services

4-hour course

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 course focuses on the complex rules which apply to the treatment of VAT related to international services, clearly explaining how to account for the VAT on these services - using illustrative examples throughout. The course guides you through the general rules and the reverse charge procedure in detail, before moving on to look at the various exceptions to the general rule.
