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.
