Course overview

*Fully updated to feature the rules in 2021*

This course explains how a UK organisation should account for VAT on cross border transactions of goods and services. Crucially, it clearly illustrates how these rules will change when the Brexit transition period ends in 2021

The course demonstrates how to correctly account for VAT on imports and exports with the EU and the rest of the world.  It also addresses the issues associated with international services, such as place of supply, VAT liability and the reverse charge. Throughout the course, the presenter highlights how Brexit has effected these transactions and what you must be aware of to ensure errors don't occur. 

Attending this course will lead to more efficient handling of international VAT within your organisation, reducing the risks of fines and penalties. What’s more, your greater understanding will help you maximise VAT reclaims and improve cash flow.
