Written specifically for churches, this guide has been completely updated to May 2021 taking account of recent case law and VAT tribunal decisions. It provides an essential reference guide to navigating the VAT system. Whilst presenting a comprehensive overview, it is user friendly and includes some major changes to VAT implemented in recent years. Of particular importance to churches are the sections dealing with land transactions such as purchasing or renting property as well as coverage of topics such as Bible weeks, nurseries and playgroups. Useful appendices contain a range of pro-forma VAT certificates to support claims to VAT zero rating and exemptions. Whether your church is VAT registered or not, the overview of charity reliefs, as well as some little known tips on how to avoid paying VAT unnecessarily, has saved some churches many thousands of pounds.
