In order to minimise the cost of VAT to an organisation, it is important to have a clear understanding of when a credit for input VAT may be taken.

In this course individuals working with VAT at an operational level on the procurement or accounts payable side of a business will gain a clear understanding of input VAT and it’s recoverability.

Delegates will have the opportunity to put into practice what they have learned using a range of case study scenarios and practical examples.
