Relevant Contracts Tax (RCT) is a withholding tax aimed at ensuring that those working in certain sectors are tax compliant. Relevant Contracts Tax is a complex area, it can be a detailed and laborious process with many unclear areas, and misdemeanors in this space can be extremely costly.
This one-day course will look to provide clear and direct guidance on RCT, including who is defined as a “principal” contractor, registration and what are your RCT and VAT obligations. We will show how to self-account for VAT, what payments are subject to RCT, dealing with multiple contracts, and we will also clarify tax clearance procedures for public sector contracts. All attendees will receive a full course pack, and will receive expert guidance from our course trainer, who specialises in RCT with over 20 years tax experience, and a former Revenue Auditor.
