Frequently Asked Questions

What benefits can a VAT accountant provide my business?

A specialist VAT accountant will minimise your tax liabilities, identify potential areas of risk, manage your relationship with HMRC and ensure full compliance with indirect tax law at all times. Even minor mistakes in your VAT returns may be judged as fraud in the eyes of HMRC, which is why it’s essential to engage the services of an experienced accountant that you can rely on.

Will my enquiry be handled by a senior tax professional?

Yes. In fact, we will also match the complexity of your requirements to the right person. We are a close-knit team of five VAT specialists, all of whom have substantial experience in managing VAT as well as particular accounting specialisms and industry expertise.

Can we arrange a remote consultation or do we have to meet in person?

Even before COVID-19 struck, some of our VAT team worked remotely so we are fully prepared to arrange an initial consultation by phone, video call, email or whichever method you prefer. Of course, we are also more than happy to arrange a meeting at our offices in the City of London.

How are your prices structured?

We offer complete transparency over our approach to pricing and normally charge per hour based on each consultant's charge-out rate. However, we can also offer fixed fees when required and often quote for standalone projects too.
