Value Added Tax (VAT)

Introduced in the UK as a ‘simple tax’, VAT has now become one of the most complicated of taxes, based on European and UK legislation and on interpretation of case law.

Regardless of how complex the VAT issue, our practical, clear advice will help clients to manage their VAT position. Our team has gained extensive experience from both within HMRC and working in practice on a broad range of complex national and international VAT issues.
