VAT is one of the most complex and onerous tax regimes imposed on businesses. Being over 1/6 of the value of most transactions, getting it wrong can be serious. The cost of mistakes can be very high taking into account the new vat penalty regime introduced in April 2009. We understand that a proactive approach is required to ensure that businesses keep within the many rules and regulations.

We can tell you if and when you are liable to register for VAT, what record are required and guide you to the specific VAT scheme which best suits your business needs.
At Shabir Ahmed & Co we have a specific VAT consultancy service, advising clients on all aspects of VAT and other indirect taxes. A significant aspect of this service is negotiating with HM Customs and Excise, always looking to ensure the best possible outcome for you.

Whatever the problem or potential problem we can help, whether that means an investigation, a penalty, an assessment or a liability dispute.

In addition to VAT, we also advise and negotiate on Customs duties, import and export matters, Insurance Premium Tax, Landfill Tax and many other related matters. Our dedicated staff always aims to provide rapid service and up to date advice.
Our cost effective VAT service includes:
  • Online registration for VAT.
  • Advice on VAT planning and administration.
  • Advice on use of the most appropriate scheme.
  • VAT control and reconciliation on a monthly or quarterly basis.
  • Submissions and help with completing VAT returns online.
  • Planning to minimise future problems with Customs and Excise.
  • Negotiating with Customs and Excise in disputes and representing you at VAT investigations and tribunals.
