No matter what your issue, from VAT liability, to the most complex partial exemption calculations, we can save you time and costs.

VAT recovery

If you make VAT exempt supplies or undertake non-business activities, your organisation may not be able to reclaim all of the VAT that it incurs on its costs, but don’t worry, we can help you optimise your recovery.

VAT liability queries

The VAT liability of your income determines both the VAT that has to be charged on to your customers and the extent to which you can reclaim VAT on costs. Therefore, getting the liability right has a direct effect on business efficiency. Getting it wrong can lead to costly VAT penalties. We can help you navigate this challenge and provide guidance for the best course of action. 

VAT training

We run sector-focusetraining courses and can offer bespoke training for your business or staff needs so that your team are best equipped to deal with VAT issues within your organisation.
