VAT for charities: an introduction

Wednesday 4 November, Cardiff: 9am - 1pm

Delivered by Liz Maher, Director of Centurion VAT Specialists Ltd

The rules of VAT can be somewhat of a minefield, but Centurion VAT is on hand to help signpost your charity to a clearer VAT future.

Whether your organisation is currently VAT registered or not, this interactive seminar will:

• provide the building blocks of knowledge you need to manage VAT effectively
• help you identify opportunities for removing VAT costs on purchases, and taxable business activities which could result in your organisation needing to register for VAT
• set out the basic VAT aspects that you need to understand as you explore new areas of funding support for income generation
• highlight VAT issues resulting from a shift from grants to contracts, or from collaboration with third parties.

The seminar is for designed to assist those whose roles require an awareness of VAT. It will be suitable for trustees or staff who are either new to the third sector or new to taking on VAT responsibilities.

 

VAT for charities: advanced complexities and considerationsCenturion VAT

Wednesday 4 November, Cardiff: 1.30 - 4.30 pm

Delivered by Liz Maher, Director of Centurion VAT Specialists Ltd

You may have some understanding of the rules and regulations relating to VAT - and how they apply to your organisation - but your VAT considerations could be rather more complex if you are embarking on projects involving elements such as construction, collaboration or the transfer of services.

This interactive seminar will:

• provide you with a more strategic understanding of the VAT issues your charity faces, specifically in relation to
    o property development projects
    o collaborations with third parties, and
    o the transfer of leisure and cultural services activities from a local authority to a newly formed charitable body

• give an insight into the VAT aspects you need to understand as you explore fundraising options, covering topical issues such as
    o direct mailings,
    o the Cost Sharing Exemption and
    o the interaction of Gift Aid with VAT.

The seminar is for designed to assist those whose roles require an awareness of VAT. It will be suitable for trustees or staff who are either new to the third sector or new to taking on VAT responsibilities, who have a basic understanding of the operation of VAT and wish to develop that knowledge by considering more complex aspects of VAT management.
