VAT Consultancy, VAT Advice from Consultant Les Howard
My affordable VAT help line for accountants provides expert VAT advice when you need it the most

VAT Help Line for Accountants

I operate a reasonably priced VAT Help Line to support independent Accountancy Practices. I can review your VAT queries, and provide professional and cost-effective solutions.

Either pay a modest quarterly retainer; or just pay-as-you-go. (The retainer only covers an initial response to any query. If more work is required, then a fee is payable).

Contact me by telephone (01480 464133) or email.

I will also add you to my e-bulletin list. This periodic VAT news bulletin provides practical VAT information, and highlights relevant issues.

Training for Accountants

I can deliver in-house training for your practice. This is tailored to your specific needs, and will include Q&A. Typically, a half-day session will cost 300+VAT. Examples of subject matter: VAT updates; penalties; cross-border; Special Schemes.

VAT Articles

I produce a periodic VAT bulletin for Accountants, and I also provide material for a number of websites.

These provide general guidance only, and fuller professional advice is always recommended.

    A Tribunal decision has provided further evidence of the difficulties that HMRC find in monitoring taxpayers' use of the Flat Rate Scheme (FRS), and how they handle situations when there is an apparent error. - [More]
  • Reduced Rate for Construction Works
    One of those perennial questions: - how does a Transfer of a Going Concern (TOGC) interact with VAT registration? - [More]
  • Public Interest Bodies
    There is an important VAT exemption for so-called 'public interest bodies.' However, over the past few years, HMRC have won a number of Tribunal cases, successfully arguing that their activities fall outside the exemption. - [More]
  • Is That Penalty Fair?
    A huge number of VAT and Tax penalties are issued and appealed each year. Few of the decisions raise any significant point of wider significance. - [More]
