Understand new developments and stay compliant

With HMRC becoming increasingly sophisticated in their VAT inspections, further VAT compliance changes for 2020, and an expected surge in development activity, housing associations need to keep abreast of these changes.

Our free update will look at VAT developments in the last 18 months that affect the sector, and how providers of social housing can prepare for the changes ahead.

What we will cover

  • Brexit - how VAT works through the transition period and beyond.
  • Making Tax Digital – what changes are needed to comply with stage 2?
  • Cost sharing groups – why HAs should be looking at these again.
  • Replacing defective cladding – are VAT reliefs available?
  • What are the new rules on solar panels?
  • Changes coming to HA partial exemption methods.
  • What VAT reliefs are available to charitable HAs, and how is HMRC’s policy shifting?
  • When support services are exempt from VAT.
  • Outsourced housing management – is this now always subject to VAT?
  • HMRC’s campaign on goods and services coming from abroad.
  • What other issues have come up on HMRC inspections at HAs and their subsidiaries in the last 18 months.
  • Getting ready for growth – what are the key VAT issues to consider.

The update will also provide an excellent opportunity to network and share experiences with other housing professionals.
