Hosted By: West Cheshire and North Wales Chamber of Commerce

Overview of the course

For those looking to dig a little deeper into the rules and regulations surrounding international trade, the Chamber offer this special one-day, supplemental course as an addendum to our accredited export training programme.

Please note the course is not part of our official export training courses mandated by the British Chambers of Commerce and exists to provide extended detail.

Who should attend

An overview of both areas, suitable for accountants, financial or administrative staff, import and export personnel, business traders, and those dealing with the effects of the New Union Customs Code in the importing and exporting procedures. HMRC are targeting many companies to verify their VAT and export documentation and records, and are penalising those companies which cannot provide sufficient evidence of export. At a UK VAT rate of 20%, that could seriously damage your wealth.

Now is the time to learn about how to ensure VAT compliance, especially in exports, keep adequate records.

What you will learn

  • We all know how to deal with VAT, don’t we? Input and Output Tax, Zero-rated and Exempt. VAT Returns and record-keeping.
  • How do you deal with your exports and despatches to elsewhere in the EU? Is Ex Works good enough to zero-rate your exports?
  • What happens if you have no documentation to prove that you exported a consignment out of the UK?
  • Do you know what the Reverse Charge system is, or even how VAT is charged on services elsewhere in the EU?
  • And what about Triangulation?
  • And do you know your C79 Import VAT certificates from your Import Declarations? The VAT man cometh, are you prepared?
