Dealing with HMRC in respect of VAT matters

Many businesses worry about their everyday dealings with HMRC, but we can help every step of the way.

We have excellent experience and insight into the way in which HMRC operate and can help businesses in all aspects of their dealings with the UK tax authority.

Many clients lose sleep over situations where HMRC arrange VAT visits – such as ‘Pre-Cred’ visits to check individual VAT returns (usually to determine whether VAT claims are appropriate) or VAT enquiries. We can give peace of mind to clients to ensure that these visits go as smoothly as possible.

We can assist in situations where HMRC have challenged the VAT treatment applied by a business and are in dispute about the correct VAT treatment. In addition, we are able to determine whether a penalty charged by HMRC is appropriate, or if there are any factors which could mitigate the penalties.

Tax enquiries can be expensive, so it is important to consider whether Fee Protection Insurance would help protect yourself in respect of the cost of such enquiries.

Our experience of dealing with HMRC (and in some instances working with them) mean that we can communicate with them effectively for the benefit of our clients.
