VAT is a notoriously complicated tax. Recent rate rises, and a harsher penalty regime, mean the risks it brings have also never been higher. VAT is a transaction based tax, so issues and queries demand a quick answer.
Our VAT team is led by 12 partners, includes dedicated specialists in every region of the UK and can draw on the BDO International Network to help tackle multinational issues. Our VAT specialists make it their business to know enough about yours so that they can anticipate opportunities and problems, and act quickly to deliver a solution. We never forget the most important aspects of any VAT solution: it must be practical, it must advise you what to do and it must not create a different problem elsewhere.
If you are concerned that you may be missing an opportunity or overlooking a potential risk, or have a particular VAT issue on your mind, our team of VAT specialists can help. Taking time to learn more about you and your business will help pinpoint areas where we can work together to make you VAT-efficient.
The starting point for our work with you is helping you manage your VAT compliance. We can complete your VAT returns for you either at your premises or at our own, freeing up your people to focus on activities that add more value. You can also rely on us to handle the complex process of making a VAT refund claim to recover VAT incurred elsewhere in the EU. If you wish to keep the completion of returns in-house, we can provide a review service to validate their correct completion.
Whatever VAT or indirect tax challenges or issues you are facing, we have the experience and the knowledge you need.
