VAT for NPOs – Half-day CPD Workshop

VAT for NPOs – Half-day CPD Workshop
  • 22nd August 2019
    09:00 - 12:00

There is a common misconception that because NGO’s are exempt from Income Tax, they automatically exempt from VAT.

The reality is, NGO’s are not VAT exempt and there are many benefits to being VAT Registered.

This half-day workshop explains these benefits and provides practical assistance with all issues surrounding VAT and NGO’s.

The advantage of enhancing your organisation’s cash flow by legally claiming VAT refunds from SARS is also explained.

Additional VAT issues will also be covered for such entities already VAT registered:
• Are donations subject to VAT?
• Does the issuing of a S18A receipt, affect VAT in any way?
• Are you entitled to claim all your input tax?
• Are you allowed to back-claim VAT for the period before you were VAT registered?

During this workshop, the following topics will also be discussed:
• The myth that NGO’s are VAT exempt.
• Why you should Register your NGO for VAT.
• Back claiming of VAT.
• Donations and when they are subject to VAT.
• Claiming VAT (input tax) – what can and cannot be claimed.
• Supporting documents.
• VAT returns and refunds.
• Audits and disputes.

This workshop counts for 3 CPD points.
