VAT is an increasingly challenging field with businesses facing complex VAT systems, case law, guidance and legislation. Our team specialises in providing all types of VAT advice to professionals mainly accountants and other professionals which can range from checking a simple VAT liability question to a large and complex transaction involving multiple areas of VAT.
More compliance requirements are needed when dealing with EC markets and joining international supply chains which can result in the requirement to register for VAT in other EC countries.
