Course Overview

The course will help people understand the major effects that international transactions of goods and services can have upon the VAT administration of a UK organisation and clearly illustrates the procedures and controls that should be implemented to comply with the requirements.

The course will demonstrate how to correctly account for VAT on the acquisition and despatch of goods between EU countries and on the export and import of good to and from non-EU countries.

The seminar also addresses the issues associated with international services, such as place of supply, VAT liability and the reverse charge.

Delegates will also be guided through the key administrative tasks involved with international trade - including the VAT Return, the EC Sales List and Intrastat.
