I am an administrator for a GP Academy which is registered as a limited company. The Academy is comprised of 12 GP practices who take third and fifth year medical students from the university and carry out training in a primary care setting. The university pays the Academy an agreed fee per student for the training - the academy invoices the university and receives payment which is then paid out to the practices as agreed. The academy will receive around £255,000 in payments this year. My question is should the Academy register for VAT in view of the amount received exceeding £85,000 or is the training of medical students exempt from VAT payment? Thank you for your advice.

Thank you for your question.

In my considered view, training of medical students in a primary care setting is exempt from VAt.
