Indirect Taxation

This brand-new course is taught for three hours one evening per week over 12 weeks. The course covers the fundamentals of VAT schemes, legislation and understanding. You will develop your skills and knowledge of preparing and submitting tax returns to the relevant tax authority and how to keep employers and clients compliant with the law practices that apply to the indirect taxation of sales and purchases. VAT legislation is forever changing, so it is suggested that students revisit this course every 2-3 years to ensure their understanding is up to date.

“I feel much more supported and have opened up more here. I get involved in sports now, as they adapt the activities to enable me to join in. I just love it here; we have a great laugh.”

What our students say

“I’m doing this for myself, to improve my skills and so I have better opportunities. To anyone who thinks they’re too old to study I would say: it’s never too late to chase your dreams.”
