Landlords Accreditation Scheme

Hi all

We charge an annual fee to landlords in connection with the Council's statutory housing responsibilities (I advised non business treatment based on this a few years ago). They complete eLearning training or provide evidence of other recognised courses relating to housing and comply with our code of conduct. Looking online most Council's run similar schemes and I can't see that we are in competition with the private sector although there is a national scheme in place. I just wanted to check what VAT treatment other LA's were applying?

Many thanks
