Limited companies, an overview

How VAT works

Colin Ford, head of the project, said:

“The webinars allow businesses and the self-employed to access this information in a lively, interesting format on any day of the year, at any time, day or night.

“Some people find tax issues daunting, especially if they are setting out in business. The webinars are one of the ways that HMRC makes tax as hassle-free as possible. This library of advice complements the guidance that is already available on the HMRC and Business Link websites.”
