VAT on Medical Education B2B, B2C, Online, Onsite

Didn't find your answer?

Hello

My friend is going to start a company, his aim is to provide medical education, training, support, consultancy to B2B, B2C, online and onsite. His client will be mainly base in UK but some could be outside UK. He want to know what will be VAT implication of his business? Should he charge VAT to everyone, or any particular group of clients?

You (sorry, your friend) need/s an accountant.

Other professional bodies are available.

“If you intend to plan a course of action based on what you read in here, you should instead be taking professional advice.”

I'm trying to remain positive, but the 'ick' factor is too strong.

"medical education, training, support, consultancy to B2B, B2C, online and onsite" is not (or certainly shouldn't be) an arena into which to enter with a cavalier lack of detailed planning.
Failing to understand VAT could merely cripple the business, but generating any advice in those medical areas that turns out to be less than fully correct ...

I’m not a VAT person but the permutations UK/non-UK, business/non-business customers, education v support v consultancy, etc., seem labyrinthine to me.

Surely your friend should be getting professional advice in order to get things right?

This needs precise details of what is being supplied, how it's being supplied, to whom and where the customer is located...your friend is going to need to pay for some advice, but it'll be money well spent, or if they are cheap and don't value professional advice (despite themselves offering training and education for a fee), then have a look at the HMRC Notice covering place of supply of services (Notice 741a).

How relevant is detail to a VAT question with a medical element? Perhaps this article on a recent case would shed some light on needing bespoke paid-for advice.
