How we help accountants

When working as an accountant, either in-house or independently, there is an obligation to help your clients to make the most of their VAT liabilities. This can be achieved by reducing payments or improving the accuracy of their VAT declarations. It is also essential that accountants help clients to avoid potentially costly HMRC penalties.

Our team of specialists can help you to do this, and we offer a range of services to ensure you are able to do so. Services include:

  • VAT Toolkit Plus

A tool for practice-based accountants, VAT Toolkit Plus is designed to help you to critically review how a client deals with VAT. This handy tool is produced as part of the audit and assists with identifying any issues and opportunities that a client may have to ensure that action can be taken.

While VAT declarations and audits are regularly carried out among businesses of all sizes, a situation can be escalated, resulting in an investigation by HMRC. When this happens, our team of experts can talk you through the options that are available to you, ensuring you are in compliance with the investigation to make the process as stress-free as possible.

In cases where your client has been subject to a HMRC assessment, The VAT People can look comprehensively at the judgment to check that everything has been carried out in accordance with regulations. Where HMRC has failed to take all the facts into consideration, there are options available to you.

VAT recovery is an integral aspect of our service for accountants. We can help you to ensure your clients are happy by offering support throughout the VAT recovery/partial exemption process. We will directly investigate and recover incorrect VAT payments for you, which gives you more time to focus on your dealings with clients.

At The VAT People, our team of specialists can provide a full audit of your clients’ VAT systems to ensure that the procedures which are in place comply with current VAT regulations. A VAT health check could bring direct benefits to your clients, which detail all areas of overpayments, non-compliance and other issues.

Ensuring that your clients have some level of in-house knowledge regarding VAT is essential for accountants. The VAT People offers a number of tailored courses to guide your clients through VAT regulation, ensuring they are compliant with HMRC rules and have the knowledge they require to carry out their operations correctly.

Managing the risk involved with clients’ VAT payments and planning processes is an integral aspect of business for accountants. Our VAT specialists can help you to enhance the quality and breadth of the service you offer clients by offering our knowledge and expertise to ensure that they only pay the minimum amount of VAT accountable to their business.

We offer a comprehensive service for accountants, helping with a broad spectrum of VAT-related issues such as day-to-day activities to ensure in-house accountants and those working independently remain up to date with the latest developments.
