VAT Advisory and Planning Services

With the impact of VAT being “above the line”, minimising your VAT burden will have a direct effect on your business’s profitability.

Our approach is to identify any VAT risks at the earliest opportunity and provide robust planning to meet your individual needs. Taking the opportunity to involve our experienced VAT professionals in the planning process at an early stage can achieve VAT savings that would be difficult to achieve retrospectively.
We do not provide off-the-shelf solutions but, by applying our deep knowledge of the tax and how HMRC operate, we will work with you to tailor a bespoke solution that fully meets your needs. Whether this is simply ensuring that all the “i’s” are dotted and “t’s” crossed, or more structural planning such as the use of special purpose vehicles for a project, we will help you manage your VAT position.

We can assist you in relation to your core business activities as well as those less routine areas such as:

  • Acquisition, restructuring or disposal of businesses;
  • Acquisition, sale and development of land and buildings; and
  • EU and international VAT transactions.

Our team has extensive experience which you can tap in to obtain prompt, commercially sound and robust advice whenever you need it.
