Further education and the complexities of VAT

This week, VAT Director Gillian McGill and Not for Profit Partner Giles Kerkham discuss the challenges faced by colleges in the UK in relation to finances and VAT treatment. 

They consider the recent recategorisation of colleges, new requirements and financial controls, difficulties with borrowing and refinancing, challenges with capital funding and the campaign for changes. They also reflect on the complexities that the sector faces in managing VAT reporting, and compare this with the position for other education providers.
