GAIN PRACTICAL INSIGHT ON THE CHANGING LANDSCAPE OF VAT ON PROPERTIES
In it's 21st year, the annual VAT and Proper Conference in London brings together experts to discuss the key changes and challenges that have developed in one of the most complex tax areas. This conference will provide unrivaled learning and networking opportunities for VAT specialists in the property industry.
Disclosure is changing - make sure you're compliant
It can seem like HMRC are continually changing the disclosure goal-posts, but celebrated barrister Hui-Ling McCarthy of 11 New Square Chambers will be on hand to discuss the latest update to the VAT Disclosure Regime (VADR), how it will work in practice, and what you can do to ensure you're compliant. This will be followed by a panel of in-house experts, legal practitioners, and financial advisors to discuss how to manage your relationship with HMRC and avoid costly penalties.
Recovering overpaid VAT
Recovery of overpaid VAT continues to be a hot topic, with challenges arising at every stage of the process. In this session legendary litigator Roderick Cordara QC of Essex Court Chambers will discuss what constitutes as overpaid VAT, when it can be claimed, and what methods are at your disposal to ensure a fair refund from HMRC.
Maximise VAT claims on residential property development
Claiming input tax on residential property for sale is relatively straightforward. But what about build to rent schemes? Or student accommodation? Kirsten Pritchard Jones of Macfarlens will discuss the best way to maximise your VAT return when building residentially - for sale or otherwise. Tackling key cases, this session will uncover the best way to handle your VAT claims for residential developments.
Reverse charge after Brexit
The European Commission has recently adopted a proposal to introduce, at least on a temporary basis, a generalised reverse charge mechanism (GRCM). But with Brexit looming on the horizon, the reverse charge mechanism may change forever. Leigh Clark, former senior director of Alvarez and Marsal, discusses how this will affect your VAT report and what to do to prepare.
VAT Groups post Skandia and Ampli Scientifica
Since Skandia and Ampli Scientifica, what actually constitutes as a VAT group has been unclear. HMRC's recent consultation has further implications of change, not to mention the problems of recovery introduced by Larentia and Heating and plumbing. Vinny McCullough of Grant Thornton will discuss practical implementation of VAT groups and how to tackle the challenge of recovery under the current system and based on the recent consultation.
The key event for indirect tax specialists
VAT and Property will bring together in-house indirect tax specialists, expert accountants from renowned firms and key legal minds from across Britain's property and construction sector.
