We are delighted to present the Taste Of series from Aberystwyth University which showcases different subject disciplines. Students will be engaged in a lively interactive discussion that provides enrichment of their current studies whilst bringing to life the wealth of academic possibilities available at university.

The webinar will focus on:

  • How VAT works and how is it collected?
  • The difference between input VAT and output VAT
