The importance of VAT cannot be underestimated in devising a business tax strategy. After all, VAT is in most cases a percentage of turnover not profit!
VAT regimes continue to increase in complexity, due in part to court cases and legislation but also as a consequence of compliance matters. Companies expanding outside the UK are faced with supply chain issues and local registration issues. We can help manage and mitigate VAT liabilities at any and all stages of your business development, identifying cash-saving opportunities and guiding you on restructuring and trading in the UK, Europe and internationally.
Additionally, we have extensive experience of dealing with HMRC and can work proactively to achieve the best outcome for our clients, whether in constructive or defensive modes.
We pride ourselves on our approach and advice being clear, commercial, pragmatic and practical. In working with us, you will soon understand your indirect tax position and better manage your tax risk.
From dissecting HMRC’s latest business briefings to explaining new VAT cases in the UK courts, our VAT experts are here to help.
