At Shasat, we are dedicated to ensuring compliance with all applicable tax laws, including those related to Value Added Tax (VAT). Our VAT policy outlines the principles and procedures that govern the calculation, reporting, and payment of VAT in the countries where we operate. This policy applies to all professional services provided by Shasat and is intended to ensure the accuracy and consistency of our VAT dealings. In this VAT policy, we will explain the basics of VAT, our VAT registration status, and the steps we take to ensure compliance with local VAT regulations.
UK VAT Policy
Value Added Tax (VAT) is charged at the current statutory rate of 20% on all courses held in the UK. As a result, all participants who attend our courses must pay the VAT.
UK Residents: Personal end users are not eligible to reclaim the VAT charged on our courses. However, VAT-registered businesses may be able to reclaim it as input tax.
EU Residents: EU residents may be able to recover the UK VAT they pay on our courses and other UK business expenses under certain conditions. For more information, please refer to the HMRC website on EU businesses visiting the UK – to get VAT refunds.
Participants from outside the EU: Non-EU residents may also be able to recover the UK VAT they pay on our courses and other UK business expenses under certain conditions. For more information, please refer to the HMRC website on Non-EU businesses visiting the UK – to get VAT refunds.
Organizations with official VAT Exemption Certificates should contact us prior to booking our courses to discuss their eligibility for VAT exemption. Additionally, organizations whose employees are attending our courses for “Sovereign Government Business” and do not have an official VAT Exemption Certificate should also contact us before booking to discuss their VAT status.
If you have any questions or concerns related to VAT and our invoice, please do not hesitate to contact us. However, for expert advice on tax matters, we recommend that you consult with the relevant tax experts or the tax department. Our team will be happy to assist you with any information or clarification you may need. Thank you for choosing Shasat for your training and development needs.
