Fresh from its challenge to Students' Unions fundraising events, HMRC now appears to be targeting Unions by categorising catering outlets as 'bars'. This webinar will run through the arguments and how to try and defend your position.

What we will cover

  • The basis and intention of the Extra Statutory Concession (ESC) for student catering
  •  Which Unions may be at risk
  • Difficulties in dealing with ESCs - what rights do you have?
  • Steps in defending your position
  • Other VAT news, including a change of interpretation on cash machines with Union's cash filling

Who should attend?
