VAT and PCN Funding (May 2019)

When developing their PCN practices will need to be very careful that the structure they choose does not inadvertently attract VAT charges. To help guide initial discussions and future considerations for practices, The BMA commissioned these guides on the potential VAT considerations of two of the most common models of PCN; the ‘lead practice model’ and the ‘federation model’. Further information on these models are available in the BMA’s PCN Handbook.
