VAT SERVICES FOR
VAT Disputes, Appeals & Litigation
It could be down to our rural roots, or our admiration and comprehension of the sector that makes us so determined to bring about VAT savings for members of this community.
A recent VAT position we presented to HMRC has resulted in a positive outcome for our clients who are benefitting from this decision, please contact us if you'd like us to achieve the same for you. We investigated what is considered non-business and business activity, to establish whether input VAT incurred is attributable to the output of an economic activity undertaken by the individual society. We look to use the benefits of farming and associated activities to create savings and make a real difference to the future of this vital industry.
So, where do we come in?
VAT planning - It is essential to put a thorough plan in place to offset the burdens of one-off costs and any nasty surprises, and make sure every opportunity to make a saving is taken advantage of. Our planning service ensures our clients are maximising their tax efficiencies and minimising risk.
VAT reclaims – We work with our clients to obtain substantial amounts of money from overpaid or underclaimed VAT. Our team has extensive knowledge winning these cases, challenging HRMC’s interpretations of tax law. We put in time and effort to fully understand the accountancy practice of the individual business, and use our expertise to unveil any missed opportunities for long-term savings.
Partial exemption – If you are VAT registered and supply services or goods that are both taxable and exempt, there are many ways to cut unnecessary costs – but unfortunately it’s not that straightforward. Here at VATangles we have extensive knowledge of the inner workings of HMRC, and plenty of experience working with partially exempt clients. This perfectly positions us to support you to cut the costs and reap the benefits.
Making tax digital – As consultants with over 30 years’ experience, we understand the frustrations and nuances that new ‘digital’ can bring. That’s why our consultant Michael Lowe became an expert in the UK Government’s initiative, Making Tax Digital. He has worked with many of our agricultural clients to implement products, services and processes to make MTD work for them, and we can do it for you to.
"VATangles is a trusted partner who has an in-depth knowledge of tax law and success at representing clients at Tribunals and in the Courts. Their expertise and advice on a recent case and other VAT matters over the last few years has been invaluable."
