The PwC VAT Conference 2021 – VAT’s Next? 10 & 11 June 2021

It’s time again for the biennial edition of the PwC VAT Conference. This year we are meeting virtually on two mornings. The conference will be focusing on the recent and upcoming changes in the sphere of VAT.

In the busy line up, we will be discussing several topics including Brexit and the impact that this will have on various aspects, the recent CJEU judgements including a spotlight on common recharges between related parties, as well as a taster on the growing trend of e-commerce and the applicable VAT package. We will also be revisiting the trending topic of VAT Grouping following its third year of implementation. 

Our VAT conference will host a number of guest speakers from the PwC network who will share with us key insights on a number of topical international VAT matters.
