VAT and Duty

Value Added Tax (VAT) is an increasingly complex tax which impacts on all aspects of business life. As a transaction based tax, businesses need to factor in the impact VAT will have on prospective business plans to ensure that there are no unexpected surprises.

In addition to VAT, many businesses also have to address Customs Duty, Excise Duties and the various environmental indirect taxes on a daily basis. Unlike VAT, which allows the offset of input tax against the output tax due, these other indirect taxes are an additional cost of sales for clients, impacting directly on profit margins.

Badged as the “simple tax” when it was introduced, VAT, along with the other indirect taxes, are no longer a simple matter. Our dedicated, highly experienced team has a broad range of specialist skills as a result of working in practice, HMRC and private industry. These skills, knowledge and experience enable us to provide a comprehensive range of indirect tax services and, whether you need advice about compliance matters or complex restructuring projects, our team will provide you with practical solutions and assistance tailored to your needs.
