VAT Penalties

We provide a VAT penalties review and mitigation service where you have been issued with a VAT penalty or where a penalty is a possibility.

This service involves our ex-VAT Inspector of 27 years reviewing your situation and where we believe there is potential for your penalty to be mitigated or reduced we can take up your case directly with HMRC.


Michele Harris has 27 years experience with HMRC working as a VAT Inspector for many of those years. This experience enables Michele to look at situations through the eyes of HMRC to establish if there are areas where penalties can be partially reduced or potentially totally overturned. There are of course no guarantees as this service is totally dependent upon each individual situation.

The service does, however, give you the peace of mind that you have tried all available avenues to reduce or be cleared of any penalties which you may have incurred. This will also enable Braceys to demonstrate to you how penalties may be avoided in the future.

This service is appropriate to businesses of all sizes, if you are facing VAT penalties then get in touch for a free 30-minute consultation to see if there is potential for us to be able to help you.
