  • Summary

At BDO, we have developed a series of VAT workshops to help your organisation proactively manage its VAT accounting. The sessions are targeted at non-VAT specialists ranging from key members of the finance team to in-house tax managers in the North West region.

VAT Essentials agenda:

This session is designed to provide an overview of the key aspects of VAT including the basics of how the tax operates and any recent developments. Most often this session is best aimed at finance team staff looking to expand their knowledge or refresh/ update themselves on an unfamiliar area of tax.

Areas to be covered:

  • Overview of the VAT system
  • Output tax
  • Input tax
  • Accounting for VAT
  • Discussion of recent updates and HMRC approach

To read more about the full programme and the discounts available for multiple bookings, please download our Programme booklet by clicking here.

Each attendee will receive a pack of materials covering the content of the session to take away with them and will have the opportunity to ask specific questions of a VAT specialist who will be running the event.


  • Registration - 9.15am
  • Workshop begins - 9.30am
  • Session ends - 12.30pm
  • Lunch and close

More Sessions:

All three sessions  will be held in our Manchester office throughout March 2020. Each session starts at 9:30am and lasts about 3½ hours followed by lunch.


The workshops are £299 plus VAT per person for each session. Volume discounts (people and event attendance) are available for organisations wishing to send a number of delegates to more than one event.

Following registration, one of our events team will contact you and send you an invoice for payment and the final confirmation details.
