VAT Planning Services Wokingham

VAT is a complex part of tax accounting affecting most organisations. Value Added Tax is collected by businesses on the behalf of HMRC and duties can vary considerably from others – creating compliance risks. Complications can easily arise around the supply of goods or services, as different rules apply to the time and place of supply – as a result, it isn’t uncommon for companies to under or overpay their VAT.

This is where our VAT planning services can help.

Here at Bettridge, our business tax specialists can help you through all the complexities of paying VAT, taking away any lingering worries you may have. We can assist with the initial registration process, the selection of the most appropriate VAT scheme, advise on record keeping (to ensure that the maximum amount of VAT is recovered), as well as help with completion of VAT returns.

We work closely with you to guide you through the ever-increasing and changing legislation in this area.
