Charity Finance Week Online 2020

Start date: November 23, 2020 9am-2.40pm

This year’s Charity Finance Summit conference will take place in the week of 23-27 November 2020 along with the Charity Technology Conference and the Charity Fraud Conference. The programme has been redesigned to take place across four half-days.

Our VAT experts Debbie Jennings and Geraint Lewis will be presenting during the event on the following topics.

VAT efficient arrangements for sharing staff, central resources and recharges

The sharing of overhead resources and staff can lead to unexpected irrecoverable VAT costs. However, there are a number of different ways whereby recharges and the sharing of resources can be achieved VAT efficiently.

This session will look at practical examples based on actual experiences, and the risks and opportunities to consider around this subject.

Update on VAT reliefs for digital advertising services

HMRC has recently issued its updated policy with regard to the VAT treatment of digital advertising services, and adverts placed on social media. This area has been under review by HMRC for a number of years, and this recent guidance provides clarity on what services can be supplied to charities at the zero rate, and what services are subject to VAT at the standard rate.

The overall position is good news, and this session will provide practical guidance and commentary on what charities and their suppliers need to do to ensure that opportunities for benefitting from VAT reliefs is maximised.
