Hi, a (VAT registered) Limited Company has received Grants

This answer was rated:

Hi, a (VAT registered) Limited Company has received Grants towards the cost of training expenses for the Director to attend training courses. The Grants have been posted to Income and included in Turnover in their books- is this correct or should they be offset against Training costs? The net effect is the same - so does it matter? CAS

Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

Grants are not turnover.
I would show it as other operating income as it is non-core activity of the business.

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.

Thanks for your help. I am assuming it is taxable as the net effect is to reduce a tax deductible expense ? CAS

Rona, thank you for accepting my answer.
Your reward of bonus is greatly appreciated.
The grant would be taxable.
