VAT returns

do you need help with your VAT returns?

Falling behind with your VAT records can be a scary feeling. Before you know it, your VAT deadline is looming and you have no time to get your records up to date. Filing your returns late can be very costly indeed, because of the substantial surcharge penalties imposed.

Not only that, the ever changing VAT legislation is a minefield leaving many business owners unclear on what they can, and can’t, claim VAT on. We know it’s tough to keep up with the latest changes from HMRC when you’re trying to run a business.

how can Mitten Clarke help?

We can help you in a number of ways.

If you keep your records reasonably up to date, we can agree a VAT timetable with you, then check over your records and submit the VAT return for you each quarter. Alternatively, if you need more help with the day to day record keeping, we’ll arrange for one of our book-keepers to do this for you. We’ll

then review the records and submit the VAT return for you each quarter.

Were used to working to strict timetables in our Staffordshire office, and well make sure that your returns are submitted on time.

Our Mitten Clarke tax experts will also check that you’re on the right VAT scheme for your business. There can often be significant VAT savings and cash flow benefits to be gained by changing to a more appropriate scheme.

It’s fair to say that no business owner relishes the thought of being selected for a VAT enquiry. If you are though, we’re here to help you through it. We can help you to collate all the information needed, attend the VAT enquiry meeting with you, correspond with HM Customs and Excise on your behalf and if necessary, help you to negotiate a settlement.
