The course aims to cover a number of issues, both currently arising and perennially troublesome, with a view to providing clarity on the implications, drawing attention to any pitfalls and recommending any opportunities arising.
Course Code 22/23
The intention is that the course and content will be of interest to staff of accounting firms and those working in accounts in industry and commerce whose work involves VAT at any level and in any capacity.
CPD hours: ICAEW’s CPD Regulations change on 1 November 2023. Members and other professionals regulated by ICAEW will need to complete a minimum number of CPD hours per year, some of which will need to be verifiable. Attending events like this could contribute 3hrs 15mins of verifiable CPD, so long as you can demonstrate that the content is relevant to your role.

ATTENTION - SAT NAV ISSUE
We recommend you use the address Putteridge Bury, Hitchin Road, Luton, Beds, WITHOUT THE POST CODE, when using a Sat Nav system.
If using either LU2 8LE or LU2 8DL postcodes some Sat Navs will direct you to the wrong place but, if you decide to use either postcode, please check where it directs you to, BEFORE you travel.
For example, some Sat Navs will take you through a closed private road if you use postcode LU2 8LE. If you use postcode LU2 8DL instead, this will take you via the Butterfield roundabout on the A505. From here follow the road signs "University of Bedfordshire - Putteridge Bury campus".
Exit at junction 10 and follow signs for Hitchin (A505). Entrance is signposted soon after the Butterfield roundabout.
Exit at junction 8 and follow signs for A602 to Hitchin. Then follow signs for Luton (A505). Entrance is signposted just before the Butterfield roundabout.
Luton (Thameslink and East Midlands Railway) and Hitchin (Great Northern) are the nearest railway stations.
There are 150 free parking spaces which are available for conference delegates.
