|Thursday 1 December, 2:00 – 3:00 pm
Scottish Care have joined up with Care England to host a webinar on the 1st December from 2:00 -3:00 pm regarding VAT restructuring. We are in challenging financial times due to the lack of local authority funding on top of the cost-of-living crisis nationally. VAT restructuring is a solution to recover input VAT for care homes on local authority and NHS funded resident contracts. Care Homes are currently unable to recover VAT without restructuring, due to the existing VAT exemption in place. Any VAT restructuring to recover VAT as a result is subject to both HMRC and Regulatory approval which has been obtained successfully in the past and equates to an uplift fee equivalent of over 3% to 5%, and is of zero costs the local authority and NHS other than an amendment to their contracts as they can recover VAT charged in full via HMRC, by way of their usual VAT returns.
The webinars are aimed at raising awareness of how care home providers can restructure their organisations to enable VAT recovery on publicly funded contracts. Highly regarded VAT specialist firm, Kieran Lynch will provide an overview of the process and answer any questions or concerns you have. They offer practical support and guidance and will work with you should you wish to look at opportunities for your organisation. Not all local authorities and NHS bodies currently permit VAT recovery, however, close to 50% do, and as such we see a significant amount of additional funding which can be made available to your organisation to help offset some of the cost pressures providers are facing now. We believe that increasing numbers of request from providers will support the argument for VAT recovery in all local authority and NHS areas.
We hope you will join this webinar and consider if VAT restructuring is something your organisation is keen to consider. This is not a sales opportunity; materials will be shared after the session to those who are interested to contact Kieran Lynch directly.
