Frequently Asked Questions – Payments

Can I pay online or over the phone?

As a standard procedure we ask our clients to pay by invoice. This is because the majority of our courses have eligibility criteria and we want to be sure that potential delegates are suited to the course before we take payment. However, if you do wish to pay online or over the phone, or have any questions, please contact us directly for guidance – info@realtraining.co.uk +44 (0) 1273 35 80 80

Do I have to pay at the time of booking?

No. At the time of submitting your booking form you are not legally committed to paying. However, access to course materials or face to face events can only be granted once agreed payment is received and processed.

Can I pay by instalments?

Many of our courses have options to pay by three or ten instalments. Please see individual course pages for details.

Can I pay by cheque?

We accept all standard payment methods, including cheques, BACS and IBAN transfers.

Can I access student loan facilities?

At present, Real Training and its affiliated companies are not registered with HEFCE and, as such, our delegates cannot access Student Loan facilities. The costs involved in being HEFCE-registered are considerable, and as these would be passed on to our delegates, we have decided against this route.

Do I have to pay VAT?

The simple answer is that VAT must be applied to all Real Training courses.

The courses we provide for are not an electronically supplied service as tutor intervention is involved. Therefore, our courses are considered to be education services for VAT purposes. From January 2011, education services fall under the general rule for Business to Business supplies and are therefore zero rated. However, Business to Consumer supplies are subject to VAT (currently 20%) where carried out (the place of supply) which for our courses is deemed to be in the UK, irrespective of the location of the consumer (student).

Am I eligible to reclaim VAT? And if so, how?

Please note that if your payment is being made by a UK VAT-registered company, you should be able to reclaim the full amount of VAT applied to your course. If you are paying from overseas via a VAT-registered organisation you may be able to reclaim VAT charged under the electronic cross-border refund system.
