SOC VAT Consultants was set up by Socrates Socratous in 2003, and since then it has become established as a leading source of VAT advice for charities, not-for-profit enterprises and small businesses. Linda Skilbeck joined SOC VAT ten years ago. Both Socrates and Linda bring over 30 years’ experience in VAT. Socrates will join Buzzacott as a Partner and head up our VAT service and Linda will be joining as Senior Manager.
Socrates Socratous commented:
“I’m delighted that SOC VAT Consultants is joining with Buzzacott. We have had a close working relationship for a number of years, and our common specialism of servicing the charity and not for profit sector makes this move a natural fit for both of us. We both like to put our clients first and share the goal of clients seeing us as part of their team. We are regularly asked about services aside from VAT and we are very pleased to now be able to offer these services through Buzzacott’s specialist teams”.
Katharine Patel, Partner and Head of Buzzacott’s Charity team said:
“SOC VAT Consultants is a highly respected firm within the not-for-profit sector and Socrates and Linda will be a great addition to the Buzzacott team. We’re thrilled to have both of them on board with us to give our clients an enhanced VAT services offering”
Tony Hopson, Managing Partner, Buzzacott said:
“The joining of Buzzacott and SOC VAT Consultants puts us in an even better position to fulfil more of our clients’ needs. They share our passion for building lasting relationships with our clients based on trust – I’m glad to have them with us”
