Value added tax is one of the most complex tax regimes faced by business. It is all too easy for businesses unwittingly to pay too much or too little. The consequences can be costly.
Harwood Hutton’s VAT specialists can help you stay up to speed with any new or revised VAT rules that affect you and your business and ensure you pay the correct amount.
With our advice, you can enjoy improved cashflow and trade safely in the knowledge you will not be facing any HMRC penalties.
Seizing the opportunities
We can help manage and mitigate VAT liabilities at any and all stages of your business development, identifying cash-saving opportunities and guiding you on restructuring and trading in the UK, Europe and internationally.
We have extensive experience of dealing with HMRC and can work proactively to achieve the best outcome for our clients, whether you are on the front foot or the back foot.
We often secure additional VAT benefits for our clients that previous advisers have failed to spot.
We work with lots of property developers and contractors who rely on our expertise to guide them through some of the most complicated tax issues faced by any business.
In property, similar transactions may have differing VAT liabilities, depending on the background and the facts. There is also the Construction Industry Scheme to master.
You can trust Harwood Hutton to find the path of maximum benefit. We can also advise on funding arrangements.
