Fundamentals of VAT: Input Tax 

VAT is an essential part of any business. Finance staff need to make decisions regarding the VAT treatment of transactions on a daily basis and if they get it wrong, it could potentially have a huge cash flow impact for the business. Training is one of the simplest and most effective methods to prevent this outflow of cash.

The Fundamentals of VAT sessions will ensure that you have a thorough understanding of the key VAT principles, including areas where the most common mistake happens. It will also give you the opportunity to discuss and clarify your understanding of the VAT treatment of typical day-to-day transactions.

At the Deloitte School of Tax & Legal, we aim to find a good balance between theory and practical application. The sessions are therefore example-focused and the course material will include additional examples of practical, day-to-day transactions that a debtor’s and creditor’s clerk would encounter.

Conversely, over-claiming input tax or claiming input tax without adhering to the documentary requirements can lead to costly penalties and interest which could easily be prevented.

It is therefore critical to have a clear understanding of the key principles outlined in the VAT Act and how to apply these rules to the day-to-day transactions of your business.
