Property taxation is extremely important but the lack of training on the subject causes most people to avoid giving it the proper attention. Most leave the matter to the accountants but ultimately the person in charge will be liable regardless of his/her ignorance.
This seminar will provide a clear and concise explanation of the fundamental property tax concepts covering selling, purchasing and property ownership tax obligations. This course covers core property tax concepts and principles including capital gain tax, vat on sale of a property, immovable property ownership tax, etc.
By the end of the programme, participants will:

The programme is designed to deliver knowledge and enhance participants’ skills via short lectures, case-studies, practical examples, real-life simulations.

Most of the training’s time will be invested in analysing a real-life case study that will help participants understand how to solve problems in similar situations.
