Value Added Tax (VAT)

If you’re just starting out in business, or if you’re growing into something larger than expected, we can help you decide whether or not you need to be registered for VAT. If you do, our experts can guide you through the process of registering, and help you manage your returns going forward. We will review the VAT threshold on an ongoing basis, so that we can see if you would benefit from de-registering, or if you need to register at any point in the future.

Cove Accountancy Services can prepare your VAT return; either from your own bookkeeping records, or from our own tracking of your businesses performance through our other services. With our help, your business will be able to claim as much VAT as possible, particularly on contentious item such as mixed-use expenditure or vehicle running costs. Just like the other areas of corporate or business tax you might face, we can act as your agent for VAT purposes and correspond directly with HMRC on your behalf, so you never have to face the dreaded brown envelopes again.

Our full-service VAT package includes:

  • Help registering for VAT
  • Advice and guidance about the various VAT schemes available, and which would be most effective for your business
  • VAT control and reconciliation
  • Completion and filing of quarterly VAT returns
  • Designing and implementing processes to avoid issues with HMRC

VAT can be one of the most time consuming and complicated things for a business to deal with, and it is our goal to make the whole process as simple and painless as possible. Whether you need guidance to tackle VAT on your own, or would like a full-service package to handle it for you, Cove Accountancy Solutions can help.
