Our expertise and experience

Some recent examples of our interventions to assist with VAT planning include: -

  • Reducing a private developer’s VAT costs to 5% on the contractor’s costs, in a business transaction involving turning residential properties into flats
  • A review of a company’s partial exemption accounting procedures identified that no annual adjustments had been undertaken, and on re-calculation we recovered over £50k in additional VAT
  • A review of a company’s non-UK activities revealed a responsibility to register for VAT in another EU member state, but ensured full recovery of VAT of expenditure incurred there
  • We ensured that an overseas property development company could recover almost £80,000 on VAT incurred in the UK
  • We helped to remove the VAT charge and reduced the Stamp Duty cost on the purchase of a VAT opted commercial building containing an ongoing tenancy.
