As the events and hospitality industry continues to develop and face uncertainty through collective decisions and wider impacts; the HBAA continues to ensure that their membership is provided with relevant business tools and therefore we have revised and relaunched the HBAA TOMS Paper.
The original HBAA TOMS paper was commissioned by David Bennett in 2010 and this was the year that the HMRC made far-reaching changes to the VAT rules in the UK.
As of 23 June 2016, the UK voted to Brexit and therefore David Bennett (Director at Elman Wall Bennett) has again worked with the HBAA as our ‘go-to’ expert on this topic and has updated the paper which incorporates the more recent position of HMRC, and the implications of Brexit.
The HBAA are also running two sell out workshop sessions this week for our members in conjunction with David and the content of this paper to ensure that our members are equipped with the knowledge to support their business decisions and future planning.
Leigh Cowlishaw HBAA Chairman commented “Our members continue to look to the HBAA to be able to provide them with up to date expertise and relevant market leading information. We are delighted that David has again delivered the 2016 HBAA TOMS paper, with the added important topic of post EU Referendum. This coupled with the continued support provided by the HBAA Code of Practice, ensures that our members have business guidance to support the tri part relationships between customers, agencies and venues”.
