Liaison Financial’s VAT Conference Series 2022

We’re delighted to announce the return of our VAT Conference series, taking place in October and November 2022. This year, we are hosting three separate conferences to suit your requirements – one face-to-face, and two virtual events – giving you the option to either join us for a full day in-person or enjoy from the comfort of your own home or office.

Each conference will be hosted by our Head of Tax Services, Kenny Lee, and will feature a number of interactive workshops. Our VAT conferences have been supporting NHS finance professionals for many years, and are specifically designed to help NHS staff who deal with VAT on an operational basis.

Following the events, we will host several optional workshops, allowing you to learn new topics or refresh your skills, network with others, and pose questions to our expert VAT advisors. These workshops will be hosted on the same day for our Stockport in-person conference, whilst for our virtual conferences, all workshops will be held on the day after the conference.
