With a 2024 Election looming and pundits appearing to forecast a landslide Labour win, the stated intention to add VAT onto private school fees is now something that Bursars and Governors should be taking very seriously – simply adding 20% on top of term charges will not be a realistic option for most.

BBVAT Webinar

Spring 2024

Our webinar will help you understand exactly what a shift in political landscape will mean, both financially and from an administrative perspective and give you practical steps to assess the impact on your school.

Our VAT experts will cover the following topics:

  • Can the VAT legislation be changed, or is this policy merely a threat?
  • What adding VAT to fees would mean, in practical terms:
    • VAT registration
    • Partial exemption
    • Making Tax Digital
    • Implications of a policy change partway through the school year
  • Measuring the impact on your school:
    • How much of a VAT charge be passed on to parents/carers?
    • VAT recovery on costs
    • Potential windfall on historic capital expenditure
  • VAT savings/mitigation strategies
  • What you need to think about now

And answer your questions, both sent to us before the event, and those submitted live.
