The ever changing regulations and the growing demands of HM Revenue & Customs mean that VAT compliance can be a difficult administrative process. We can help to ensure that you comply with the regulations and that overpayments are not made.

To help you manage this complex area, we provide an efficient, cost-effective VAT service, which includes:

  • Advising on the implications and requirements of Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT registered businesses. Please see our MTD page
  • Assistance with VAT registration
  • Advice on VAT planning and administration
  • Use of the most appropriate VAT scheme
  • VAT control and reconciliation
  • Help with completing VAT returns
  • Planning to minimise future problems with HM Customs and Excise
  • Negotiating with HM Revenue & Customs in disputes if necessary.

HM Revenue & Customs Investigations

Being the subject of a tax investigation by the HM Revenue & Customs can be a stressful and worrying experience. We have a wealth of experience in dealing with HM Revenue & Customs investigations, whether they are enquiries into an individual’s Tax Return under the Self Assessment regime, more detailed enquiries or employer-related investigations into PAYE and P11D compliance. If you are about to be the subject of an investigation, we can provide expert help and support.

Fee Protection Insurance

With the increased risk of such investigations it may be worth considering taking out an annual insurance policy to protect you and your business from unexpected costs; an investigation will undoubtedly result in additional accountancy work being undertaken. The amount of work will depend upon the complexity of the case but the cost could be substantial. We are able to provide fee protection insurance cover for you and your business.
