To find out how to provisionally book, or if you need a quote, click on the red “how to book” tab, above, or capture your email in the right-hand panel to initiate the pro-forma process.


This is a full-day course covering the complexities of the vendor’s VAT position dealing with export and off-shore supplies in international trade.

The course addresses

Export Regulation R.316 and Indirect Exports;

Return & Repair and VAT;

Zero-Rated Direct Exports & VAT;

Special Supplies;

Merchanting etc.

We will also look at when the vendor may raise their invoices in foreign currencies and when they may not; how the rate of VAT influences the currency of the transaction; how to deal with pre-payments and extended credit.

Indirect exports are in most instances subject to VAT at the standard rate. However, there are opportunities where the vendor may elect to zero-rate the supply of the movable goods, subject to certain requirements being met. Importantly, the requirements for documentary compliance are covered in detail.

This course is based in part on the hundreds of questions and actual problems raised by past delegates since 1997 and the event creates an excellent forum for questions & answers.

The course fees include electronic copies of the presentation material, VAT Interpretation Notes and Guides as well as the latest SA VAT wall chart and a hyperlinked version of the 5th Edition of Trading Words & Phrases.

Course costs include lunch and a certificate of attendance.

This course is also available as an in-house event;
