ACCA UK's Practitioners’ Network is running a series of three webinars on VAT and Property Development in February 2017.
Robert Warne – Head of VAT at Crowe Clark Whitehill – will present all three webinars in the series. Robert is a partner in the specialist VAT Group of Crowe Clark Whitehill. He has been with the firm since 1988, joining directly from HMRC where he was a VAT inspector. His professional VAT qualifications include ATII and IIT. He is responsible for coordinating the firm's VAT training seminars, both externally as well as in-house, and he is a regular speaker on the VAT charity circuit.
The series will cover:
Introduction to VAT and property development Tuesday 7 February 2017, 12:30 In this webinar, Robert will provide an introduction to the different VAT implications when building privately or commercially. He will also provide an overview of the other two webinars in the series which will cover commercial development (with an emphasis on the need for VAT planning and guidance), the rules governing VAT refunds for DIY house builders on self-build new homes or non-residential conversions, and conversions of buildings.
VAT and commercial property development Tuesday 14 February 2017, 12:30 In this webinar, Robert will discuss commercial development with emphasis on the need for VAT planning and guidance. Robert will consider situations where a property developer wants to do brownfield rather than greenfield development; the implications for demolishing existing buildings completely versus extending an existing building; and where a developer wants to keep a property rather than sell it on.
VAT and property development – self-builds, residential conversions and non-residential conversions Tuesday 21 February 2017, 12:30 In this webinar, Robert will discuss the rules governing VAT refunds for DIY house builders on self-build new homes or non-residential conversions. He will also consider conversions of buildings - particularly converting formerly commercial or previously unused buildings into residential properties or into a number of units and where the reduced rate of 5% may apply.
Each webinar lasts for an hour and constitutes one unit of CPD where the content is relevant to your current or future role. You can register now for any of these webinars and then add them to your calendar.
