Staying on top of VAT is essential to help avoid stiff penalties for non-compliance and late filing, while also helping to improve cashflow and profitability.
VAT affects a range of business functions, with wide variations in the rules depending on your business activities and sector. It is essential you have specialist advice to ensure your business is compliant and to help with complex capital projects or transactions to minimise your tax exposure.
With increasing scrutiny from tax authorities, it’s vital you have the right advice should you want to dispute a VAT assessment or negotiate a settlement with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC).
