The questions about April’s VAT changes that
freelancers have had since they came into force could this month be posed in
real-time to the taxman.
So sole traders unsure what to do next having VAT-registered; others
stuck on their VAT
return under the FRS,
and those wanting an overview of VAT schemes, can all get answers.
The most basic of the three webinars -- ‘VAT: Now
you’ve registered,’ takes place tomorrow (Wednesday) from 11.30am
for one hour.
For freelancers who already know VAT’s differing
rates, how to claim or
charge it and its record-keeping
requirements, the next webinar ‘How to do your VAT Return,’ is better.
It takes place on Monday
August 14 for freelancers needing to settle up under either the Flat Rate
Scheme (which in April introduced a ‘limited costs’ trader rate),
or standard accounting.
Newcomers to freelancing unsure about which of the
Revenue’s VAT Accounting Schemes is most suitable for them should join the
third webinar, on Wednesday August 23.
“This webinar tells you who can use them and how to join,” HMRC says of the
one-hour event. “Discover if one of these is for you.It could help
your business and save you time.”
