VAT and the City is an essential book for those who work in VAT that describes how VAT affects transactions in banking, finance, securities, investment, insurance and commodities.
It gives an insight into the problems and implications of these highly specialist areas and indicates how component parts of the industries are affected and how they should approach the handling of their VAT affairs.
VAT and the City was last published in 2007 and much has happened in VAT and financial services since this time. A period of five years will have elapsed since the last edition, making this a timely moment to publish the seventh edition.
The book is aimed at anyone who advises clients on VAT in the financial, banking and insurance sectors. Companies operating in these sectors will also find it extremely useful as will HMRC.
The amounts of potential VAT input tax that are liable in the financial sector are huge. Financial sector businesses are still predominantly VAT-exempt and the prime concern is with the recovery of input VAT. But businesses are now much more aware of the impact of VAT and are more inclined than they were to mitigate its effect. VAT and the City is packed with sound tax planning advice and information on VAT in the financial sector.
It is both practical and encyclopaedic, making full reference to HMRC practice and the evolving domestic and European case law and gives some very wise advice on planning.
