hi there, would anyone be able to help me with the following matter? 

i am hoping to launch a local business directory and sell advertising space within its pages. 

how would this venture work with regards VAT?

Must i pay VAT on any in-directory advertising space that is sold?

i find HMRC website a bit of a minefield!

Hi John


Thank you so much for taking the time to reply.  HMRC eventually got back to me and confirmed what you have stated.  I was merely hoping there may have been some tax exemption in this area for a CIC.

Agan, thank you and good luck with your business venture!
