This session will give a detailed walkthrough of the various VAT considerations companies operating in the financial and insurance services sector should. The majority of such services are exempt from VAT, however there are other services which may be considered to be debatable, while naturally others which are chargeable for vat purposes. Hence, this session will discuss the definitions and scope of the exemption. In the absence of clear-cut legislative definitions, we will refer to CJEU case law and domestic practice and guidelines. The treatment of input VAT will also be evaluated, and moreover, the possible utilisation of partial attribution.
