Mark Peters VAT Associates provides independent VAT consultancy services to both businesses and professional firms.
VAT is a high risk tax that is becoming increasingly difficult to self assess effectively. The complex and subjective nature of many aspects of the rules, and the frequency with which they change, create risk and opportunity in equal measure. Often there is no right or wrong answer, but a choice of potential filing positions. Penalties only up the ante even further. An experienced pilot is essential if you are to chart these waters safely and successfully.
We specialise in providing practical, coherent and commercial advice designed to help you manage your VAT affairs, or those of your clients, confidently and effectively. We provide professional advisory services, calling upon the expertise of other specialist consultants as and when required.
Whatever, wherever and whenever, if its VAT related, we can help you.
