Eventia members will be aware of our recent agreement with HMRC on VAT invoicing of the “Non TOMS” elements of events, and the recent European Court of Justice decision on wholesale supplies.
Both of these key areas of regulation have a direct bearing on the business model of agencies, DMCs and others in the events business.
The deadline for responses on PTR Reform is 29th November so the Eventia Regulation Committee is holding a consultation meeting ahead of this to give members and other businesses affected by these changes the opportunity to have their say and hopefully influence the final form of this legislation. Members can also get an up-date on how changes to TOMS and the latest ECJ Judgement may affect their business.
The seminar which takes place on Wednesday 13th November between 2pm and 6pm at Saffery Champness Offices, London will take the form of two 2 hour interactive sessions lead by Eventia Regulation Committee Chairman, Brian Kirsch, Managing Director of Event Assured.
Session 1: Reform of the Package Travel Regulations – Brian and travel industry lawyer Kylie Mather will lead the exchange on the key points from the BIS Call for Evidence, seeking direct member feedback to help drive our response.
Session 2: David Bennett of Saffery Champness and Chris Parnham, Chairman of HBAA and Managing Director of Absolute Corporate Events will lead a briefing and interactive session on how changes to TOMS will affect events and travel businesses.
This is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for businesses in events to have direct input to the legislative process.
