It is important to ensure your staff who have an involvement with VAT, either directly or indirectly, are equipped with the appropriate knowledge to assist them to function effectively. For example, those involved in decisions about capital expenditure need to be aware of the potential impact of major transactions on the Council’s partial exemption position. If nothing else, this will enable them to seek appropriate advice at an early stage.

Likewise, some basic VAT awareness training for those involved in invoice processing can lead to an improvement in the accuracy of VAT coding.

We are able to offer training to your staff at all levels. Like all the services we provide, training courses are tailored to meet the specific needs of your authority and your staff.

Please use our ‘contact us‘ tab to discuss how we can help and to set up an initial meeting, which is both free and without obligation.
