Whilst Value Added Tax (“VAT”) is a tax on consumption born by the final consumer, the supplier has the obligation to comply with the relevant laws and regulations. Not charging VAT on the right amount or at the right time may lead to considerable tax exposure. A sound knowledge on how, when and on what to apply VAT is becoming increasingly important given the diversity of supplies, both in terms of goods and services. 

At the end of the course, attendees will understand when a business should register or impose VAT, what are the different types of supplies, as well as the VAT treatment for certain specific transactions, such as recharges.

Recovery of input VAT is a complex area as not all input VAT incurred by a company can be claimed. Input VAT in respect of certain expenses (such as accommodation, motor cars, etc.) are simply not recoverable while VAT incurred on common expenses should be apportioned where a company makes both taxable and exempt supplies. Often, companies face difficulties in administering adequate VAT recording systems and therefore end up offsetting irrecoverable input VAT against their output VAT. Such practices may expose businesses to significant risk of penalties and interests as the company is over-claiming input VAT. 

At the end of the course, attendees will have a solid knowledge of the mechanics of input VAT to help their businesses improve their VAT system and reporting in order to mitigate the risk of under/ over recovery of VAT.
