Practical workshop: VAT – certified for CPD – Oct/Nov 2015

This one-day, practical workshop is designed for individuals that are required to calculate and submit their company’s VAT returns, and who have no or very little understanding/knowledge of how VAT works.

This workshop introduces a totally practical approach to VAT and it’s components so that the calculation and subsequent submission and payment to SARS are done accurately.

You will be able to recognise and understand when VAT on sales (OUTPUT VAT) becomes payable to SARS, and be more aware and informed of when VAT on purchases (INPUT VAT) may be deducted and when not.

With application of the practical information obtained from this workshop, you will be able to do accurate calculations of VAT for submissions to SARS to avoid overpayments.
