Our VAT Healthcheck service is designed to find any VAT issues before the VAT man does!

Why not call us in prior to any visit?

The Healthcheck can:

  • Review and sample check your accounting records for errors;

  • Sample test the most common errors that the VAT inspectors look for;

  • Statistically analyse your completed VAT returns;

  • Sample check the completion of VAT returns;

  • Compare your VAT returns against your annual accounts;

  • Consider whether you are making best use of relevant VAT schemes;

  • Ensure you are correctly applying the rules of VAT schemes;

  • Identify VAT planning opportunities.



For VAT registration we can assist with:

  • Advising if you need to or if it would be beneficial to register;

  • Completion of the VAT registration forms and formalities;

  • Advising on the best VAT schemes to use suitable to your business - some you have to notify HMRC you are using and some you don't.


There are three methods we can use to assist in completion of VAT returns:

  • Let us do your book-keeping and we complete the return from there;

  • Give us your books and we'll complete the return for you;

  • We provide you with training on how to complete your own return.


We complete VAT returns in good time to ensure you avoid any penalties.


In addition, we can assist with:

  • Applying for VAT registration;

  • Advice on the VAT schemes suitable to your business;

  • VAT planning;

  • Dealing with any disputes that arise with Customs;

  • Attendance at VAT inspections.

Compliance with VAT is complex.  Investigations by the VATman can be intense - all the more important that your VAT returns are completed correctly.
