Sector VAT issues
There is a growing range of diversity of income generating activities particularly in the further education sector. Attracting international students is a theme across many education providers as is delivering a positive student experience which all bring complex VAT issues. Collaboration with parties to raise educational outcomes, academies, further integration of providers are all issues on the horizon for the sector.
How Centurion can help
Our engagement with the education sector is wide ranging from advising on land and property transactions and development plans through to compliance reviews, the devising of partial exemption methodologies and the delivery of sector specific VAT Training events.
For many years Centurion has supported education clients through our helpline and VAT Management Programmes. On special projects whether mergers or major campus redevelopments we are on hand to ensure VAT issues are recognised early in the discussion and planned for accordingly.
The strength and quality of our VAT support to this sector demonstrates why Centurion won the Taxation Best VAT Team in the UK in 2013 beating both Deloitte and KPMG and again being in the top 3 VAT teams in the UK in 2015.
