Our  VAT Planning Experience

Private developers and property

  • Assisting in reducing a private developer’s VAT liability down to 5% against the cost of contractors. The transaction in this instance involved turning a single residential property into flats. 

  • Assisting in the recovery of £80,000 of VAT incurred by an overseas property company in the UK.

Overseas activity

  • We can help with your clients’ VAT activity in the UK and abroad. We recently  carried out a review of a company’s non-UK activity and revealed their responsibility to register for VAT in another EU member state. We were then able to recover the full VAT expenditure in the foreign country.

Partial Exemption Accounting

  • Conducting a review of a client company’s Partial Exemption Accounting, identifying that no annual adjustments had taken place and successfully recovered £50,000 in overpaid VAT.
