CONTENT UPDATED EVERY 2 MONTHS.
A detailed and practical guide to VAT law and practice applying to construction, land and property matters in the UK and Isle of Man for advisers and businesses alike.
Which key topics are covered?
Detailed chapters cover major topics such as the option to tax, TOGCs and residential projects but even the most obscure provisions and reliefs are also addressed in this unique resource. More general aspects of the tax, such as time and place of supply, partial exemption and the capital goods scheme, and the disclosure rules for 'schemes' are closely examined from a real estate perspective.
What material is included in each release?
Commentary is interspersed with extracts from HMRC guidance, case law summaries and examples, providing even the most knowledgeable reader with reminders of exactly what HMRC said in 2005 or the name of that Latvian case from last year.
Material is generally retained until it is four years out of date (and consequently out of time for any assessment or back-claim) but a useful annex gives an historic overview for those who need it.
