Mazars hosts VAT and tax seminar for charities

The Milton Keynes office of Mazars, the international accountancy and advisory firm, will be hosting a VAT and tax workshop highlighting cost reduction opportunities for charities.

The event will take place on Wednesday 28 June at Mazars, The Pinnacle, 160 Midsummer Boulevard MK9 1BP from 8.30am – 12.30pm and will be followed by a buffet lunch

Covering a range of topics including general VAT recovery principles; relevant VAT reliefs; VAT liabilities of income and VAT mitigation opportunities, experts from Mazars will outline the potential impact of recent VAT developments in the sector and explore the key risks for the charity sector.

The Mazars team will also update attendees on the most significant case law decisions for the sector and explain HMRC’s stance in light of these decisions.

Stephen Eames, Milton Keynes Managing Partner at Mazars, said: “We’re so pleased to be able to host an event that is specifically for charities.

“Mazars has strong links with the charity sector and our VAT team often sees charities not taking advantage of readily available VAT opportunities. Quite often many charities are not even aware that VAT reliefs are available to them even if they are not VAT registered. We will seek to cover general VAT issues that charities should know about, regardless of their level of VAT knowledge”.
