VAT Returns and Advisory

At Alexander & Co, we can help you navigate the complex world of VAT legislation. VAT affects all businesses and the financial penalties can be extremely high, due to non-compliance.

We can provide VAT specialists that will assist you with any compliance issues and help to minimise liabilities and penalties, should you find yourself in the midst of a VAT investigation.

Our specialists can help you understand the following and help you avoid running into any trouble with VAT.

VAT Registration and De-Registration

Our VAT specialists can help you with registering your business for VAT or unregistering your business from VAT.

The sale of any goods or services are taxed by the government, so it is important to make sure you are properly registered for VAT to avoid penalties.

If your business has an annual turnover of £82,000, you need to make sure you are registered for VAT. We can help you understand what information is required and make sure you fill in the correct VAT Return for your business.

VAT Control and Reconciliation

Companies that are VAT registered will be required to produce and reconcile their VAT Return either quarterly or on a monthly basis.

We can assist you in controlling and reconciling your VAT.

This process is best managed by a fully qualified accountant, as it requires the VAT to be accurately reviewed, ready for you to send your VAT return.
