VAT Advice

ETC Tax provides practical and effective specialist VAT advice to help businesses and their advisers reduce the burden of VAT.

We pride ourselves in making complex VAT issues understandable.

We have many years’ experience helping clients navigate through the complexities of VAT, whether generating VAT savings or helping with VAT compliance and VAT processes.

Our VAT team is headed by an ex-big 4/HMRC specialist with over 30 years’ experience.

Because VAT is a tax on transactions, it impacts almost all businesses, charities and other organisations, even those that aren’t VAT registered.   We therefore advise on the VAT treatment of all types of transaction and the recovery of VAT on related costs. We have extensive knowledge of VAT schemes, special VAT accounting methods and VAT compliance matters, and regularly help clients through HMRC enquiries.

We also provide advice on other indirect taxes such as Customs Duties, which will increasingly apply to UK businesses as the UK completes its exit from the EU.

There are countless ways to improve a business’s VAT position. Some require careful planning but many are relatively straightforward. Many VAT reliefs are either unknown to businesses or not utilised because they are considered too complicated. We pride ourselves in being able to simplify complex VAT issues and unlock VAT opportunities for our clients.
