      BACKGROUND INFORMATION

      The Maltese VAT Act provides for various punitive measures (penalties, interest, assessments etc.) to be imposed/issued in the eventuality that taxable persons fail to adhere with the various provisions of the Maltese VAT Act. Whilst certain VAT risks some practitioners are quite aware of, it often happens that one is not fully aware of other material VAT risks especially in new/one-off scenarios when one comes across new types of transactions, new client types, new set-ups, new companies, incorrect/late VAT returns, incorrect/late invoices, VAT inspections and similar situations.

      OBJECTIVES OF THE SESSION

      The scope of the session is to first analyse in detail the main VAT risks which might lead to negative consequences if the applicable VAT provisions are not fulfilled. The session will then proceed with identifying and determining which consequences (penalties/interest/assessments) will be applicable when the applicable VAT provisions are not adhered to properly and why (including references to the various parts of the legislation which list down when such consequences are triggered and the applicable conditions). Finally the session will discuss practical tips and actions which may be taken by involved parties with a view to ensure that such VAT risks are minimised as much as possible.

      Specific topics to be covered during the session

      • VAT Risks (including risks pertaining to VAT Treatment, VAT Registrations, VAT Claimability, VAT Forms )          • VAT Consequences (Penalties, Interest, Assessments)
      • Practical Tips and Actions to minimise such VAT risks

      Target Audience

      Professionals, Practitioners and other accounting staff members dealing with all VAT related issues including the determination of the vat treatment, handling of VAT invoices and other documentation, compilation and filing of vat returns and VAT payments.

            BackgrounD information

            The determination and application of the proper VAT treatment often gives rise to certain questions and uncertainties, especially when entering into new/one-off transactions or dealing with new/different customers and suppliers. Given that adopting an incorrect VAT treatment may prove to be quite costly, it is of utmost importance that the proper VAT treatment is applied in a timely manner.
            The scope of this course is to analyse and discuss how to arrive at the proper VAT treatment of various transactions over 3 VAT practical workshops which will target the typical VAT practical issues encountered in the day-to-day work. Examples will be taken from past experiences encountered. Questions from participants are also encouraged to make the sessions more interesting and useful for attendees.

            These 3 VAT practical workshops will target the typical VAT practical issues encountered in the day-to-day work. Examples will be taken from past experiences encountered. This will then be followed by the VAT treatment of complex transactions. The 3 sessions will be as follows:

            Session 2. VAT Practical Session – Services (B2B/B2C, Location and Nature of Customer, Exceptions to General Rules, Exemptions, Tax in Danger)
            Session 3. VAT Practical Session – Other VAT issues (Right of Refund/Partial Attribution, VAT Registrations, Time of Supply, Taxable Value)
