Mistakes when dealing with VAT and VRT can be costly – significant changes to the treatment of VAT in the Motor Industry have happened in recent years and it is essential that you and your staff are aware of the correct procedures and are up to date.  SIMI revise the content and format of this training programme on an ongoing basis to ensure that it meets the needs of members by dealing with areas such as the New Scheme providing for an Export Repayment of VRT which is available since 8th April 2013 - Used car imports, and the treatment of pre-registered vehicles - the difference between demonstrators/pre-registered for own use and those that are put out to car hire.  The programme is suitable for accounts and sales staff in retail garages
