Who should attend?
This one day course will be of benefit to accountants, lawyers and other professionals who have to deal with, or advise on, VAT aspects of buying, selling, constructing, repairing or operating buildings and property, both commercial and residential. 

What will you gain
Many accountants, solicitors and tax advisers find that many of the VAT problems brought to them by clients relate to property – these are typically high value transactions or expenditure in an unfamiliar area of VAT. This course will enable delegates to deal with these issues confidently. Key planning areas in the commercial property field, such as the option to tax and partial exemption, are dealt with, and the impact of anti-avoidance legislation is highlighted. In the residential property field, the course shows how to obtain and keep the benefit of zero rating and reduced rating. The course shows how to avoid common pitfalls in both commercial and residential property.
