VAT Returns

We provide an expertly resourced VAT returns completion service for individuals and businesses so they can have peace of mind that their VAT is being calculated correctly and filed on a timely basis.

VAT is an incredibly complicated tax with penalties which can become punitive. VAT enquiries are detailed and can often lead to a provocation of other tax type enquiries if they pick up on something else while they are looking at your VAT. There are a myriad of different expense types and a significant amount of them do not allow for VAT to be reclaimed. Equally, there are many different types of service and sales which can be made and while many may appear straight forward there are also many complications.


We can prepare your VAT return from either core records or we can review the bookkeeping which you have already prepared. We operate on numerous different accounting systems and flex our service to match your needs.

Our clients work with an individual account manager who ensures that there is consistent and timely communication in order that you can be comforted that your VAT return is being prepared correctly. Our VAT services are headed up by an ex-VAT Inspector with 27 years of experience of working with HMRC.


We work with businesses of all sizes. We have considerable resource within our practice which means we are able to scale our service to match your business.
