HMRC have agreed to continue to participate in a trial of VAT ruling requests for complex cross-border transactions until 30 September 2018.

The pilot has been ongoing for a number of years so perhaps is not really a trial anymore. In the face of Brexit though, it is useful to see that HMRC will still offer rulings for complex cross-border transactions, at least for another 14 months.

If you are planning a complex cross-border transaction involving 2 or more of the prescribed EU jurisdictions you can apply for non-statutory clearance in advance on the transaction.

Wouldn’t it be great and think how much TIME it would SAVE you if someone:

  • READ all the latest tax news, case decisions, new legislation and articles in tax and then summarised them for you?
  • Only alerted you to things that are RELEVANT to you?

How about if that someone also:

  • Updated those summaries in REAL TIME for you
  • ADDED examples, planning points, toolkits and calculators, and
  • Linked all that information together and also provided you with CPD?

Thousands of firms of accountants and advisers are already using as their primary TAX resource.

At a cost of just £1 per day, it’s a no brainer: FREE up your MIND and your TIME (and your wallet).

And...we run our Virtual Tax Partner support service, if you need assistance with a particular issue.
