VAT Services

Value Added Tax (or VAT) is one of the most complex taxes for businesses to deal with on a day-to-day basis. Luckily, Wisteria Accountants are here to help. We’ll help you address this complex matter, giving you one less thing to worry about and allowing you to focus all of your attention back on your business.

Our understanding

VAT applies to many of the goods and services consumers buy. Most businesses however, particularly those starting their first enterprise, struggle to get everything compliant without utilising VAT services.

Determining the correct VAT rate or VAT status in any one situation can be tricky due to the reliance on case law working hand in hand with legislation. Recent cases involving famous brands are well known, but there are many more cases that affect the VAT charged on everyday goods and services.

In addition to this, the penalties for getting VAT wrong are rigorously imposed and can be very expensive. Get it right first time with a bit of help from Wisteria.

How we can help

At Wisteria, we provide a wide range of VAT services, including:

  • VAT registration and advice
  • Completion of VAT returns
  • Reviewing eligibility and efficiency of VAT schemes, such as the Flat Rate Scheme
  • Resolving complex VAT issues where the law is unclear
  • Investigating VAT saving opportunities
  • VAT advice
  • Help with International VAT issues
  • Guidance in relation to sector specific VAT issues

If you require more simple advice, we can also help out. For example, we can determine which VAT rates apply in each circumstance, where VAT exemption may apply, or simply ensure processes and invoices are optimised to minimise work at a later date.
