The EU VAT laws have undergone comprehensive changes which have to be implemented by member states by 2015. This session will help planners understand how to handle the VAT when organizing an event in the European Union, either for not‐for‐profit associations or corporations.  Learn how to comply with invoice regulations according to local specifications. 

  • Review when there is a need to pay VAT
  • Identify requirements specific to associations
  • Determine key issues for recovering VAT on vendors’ invoices
