Debbie Jennings is one of the featured experts at this year’s Charity Finance Summit. The Conference has grown to become one of the key learning and networking events for charity finance teams.
Debbie will be delivering the following topics:
- The current climate for VAT recovery and partial exemption
This session will explain the rules for calculating the amount of VAT that can be recovered on expenditure, taking into account both non-business, VATable and exempt business activities. It will explain the rules for attributing costs to income and activities, the methods that can be used for these purposes, and the leading case law in this area. The session will also highlight the practical requirements for negotiating and agreeing methods with HMRC.
- VAT consequences for property transactions
Property transactions can be subject to a full range of VAT liabilities, or fall outside the scope of VAT entirely. Charities can qualify for VAT relief on certain property expenditure, but the rules are complex. This session will explain the key rules applicable to the typical property transactions whilst highlighting where opportunities exist for mitigating the impact of VAT.
