VAT Part 2 – Complex Aspects and New Developments

This VAT – Complex Aspects and New Developments covers more complex aspects of VAT, highlighting problem areas, recent developments and EU and UK legislation. It assumes as prior knowledge topics in VAT Part 1 – An Introduction to UK VAT.

VAT Planning and Pitfalls

VAT mistakes are costly and penalties for errors add to the cost. Most could be avoided by giving attention to detail before the transaction takes place. This VAT Planning and Pitfalls training course covers a very wide range of VAT subjects and examines the availability and possibility for planning and the many areas where errors frequently occur.

VAT Refresher

VAT law and practice is constantly changing. There are numerous updates to VAT Notices. HMRC also issue many business briefs and information sheets to reflect changes in policy and interpretation.

Anyone who has been away from the VAT world for a while will find on return that the landscape is different. Others may have maintained a good basic VAT knowledge but sometimes reminders and confirmations can be invaluable.  A phrase often heard on course is   “it was always done that way”. However, that does not always make it right. This VAT Refresher course caters for people re-entering the VAT world as well as those who want to build on or refresh their basic knowledge. There will be opportunities to ask questions relating to delegates’ own circumstances.

VAT Update and Problem Areas

VAT is a tax where it is all too easy to get things wrong. Working as it does according to its own rules – quite different to those applying to other taxes – it is an area where an experienced navigator can be especially helpful in demonstrating how to negotiate the minefield. It is also an area of constant change.

The aim of this session is to update delegates on all the main changes in VAT over the past year and to discuss a series of topics of current interest, which, in the presenter’s experience give rise to the costliest misunderstandings.

VAT – Partial Exemption

The vat-partial-exemption course is designed to provide a detailed explanation of the principles of partial exemption, give delegates a clear understanding of how it applies to their business and provide the tools for identifying the optimum apportionment method.

At the end of the course, delegates will have:

  • a clear understanding of how partial exemption works and how the recovery of VAT can be maximised through its application
  • a heightened awareness of VAT-saving possibilities

Junior staff will become familiar with the right questions to ask, and senior staff will have clear guidance towards making key decisions.

Wealth Management

This interactive wealth management training course will offer participants the opportunity to understand the current dynamics in a sector with an attractive growth profile.

Whistleblowing Policy – Building a Culture of Openness

Whistleblowing is about protected disclosure – raising concerns of serious malpractice or wrongdoing in the workplace by workers in a safe manner. Such transparency is a necessary part of building a culture of accountability and this, in turn, is vital in the prevention and detection of fraud, bribery and other corrupt business practices. Organisations must build an appropriate framework that protects staff who blow the whistle. This Whistle-blowing Policy half-day interactive course shows delegates how to do this and places whistleblowing in its international context before focusing on the position in the UK, reviewing PIDA and subsequent legislation. It then concentrates on organisational needs and takes delegates through a practical 10-step programme that promotes successful whistleblowing.

Working Capital Management

The course examines the various components of working capital, how they interact and how they affect firm liquidity, default risk and shareholder wealth. It covers the basic principles and explores implications for both smaller companies and larger enterprises. Delegates will gain an appreciation of the techniques employed to manage working capital to improve profitability and cash flow. Case studies showing the consequences of poor working capital management will be an integral part of this course.

Working in Teams

People working effectively together lies at the heart of every successful organisation. It is critical in your role as manager that you have a clear understanding of the principles behind effective teamwork and that you learn how to apply these in practice. You will learn how to delegate appropriately and maximise the use of those working with you and for you.  Appreciation of the need to demonstrate enthusiasm, commitment and initiative in meeting your management responsibilities, motivating yourself and those you work with will also be addressed.
