Yes, it is correct. As a UK business, the training Co. is a taxable person and as such it is required to charge VAT on its supplies of services i.e., the course itself. The training Co. will then remit such VAT to the UK tax authorities.
Since you are a non-resident, you may claim back the VAT through the 13th EC directive.
Feel free to contact me should you need any further clarification.
I agree with the previous answer and I also get your point. The answer to your question, however, lies on the contract of carriage you have 'signed' with the airline. You will probably find a clause based on which the airline will not refund your ticket if you do not show up at the gate. As additional info, which has nothing to do with your case, be informed that it is common practice in the industry to sell more tickets than the available seats. Such practice is called 'overbooking' and DoT...
You will be responsible towards the U.S. Government from an income tax perspective. The country you are located most likely has a treaty against double taxation hence, if you pay income taxes overseas, you should be able to apply for a tax credit in the U.S..
As per the second part of your question, you should specify which type of taxes you are talking about. Basically, you should not be accountable for indirect tax towards the U.S. revenue. These you describe seem to be consumption taxes...
Mr. Pedersen explanation is very clear.
If the attorney gave some advises to you, he is entitled to a reasonable fees. He should have informed you anyway re the charge.
Try to sort this out with the new attorney before challenging the charge.
Before acting make sure the discount refers to the particular items you refer to. You know there are lots of ads like these ones you mentioned that have a small disclaimer stating that discount does not apply to certain products.
I do not see any issue re the name. What really matters is the regime you agreed with your husband, i.e., joint or separated.
Also, if you are the member of the LLC, any business debt will affect the LLC, not you personally.
But I agree with my colleague that you better consult an attorney and be guided accordingly.
Of course you cannot be evicted for stating your dissent/concerns or whatever else that it is not in breach of the lease agreement.
Look, these are very aggressive people. I suggest you to hire an attorney to defend your interests.
You need to consult with an attorney and soon. Not sure where your LLC is incorporated but laws of several states provide that members of an LLC are personally liable jointly and severally for any sales tax deficiencies of the LLC.
