Essential VAT Services will provide you with the best possible advice on all matters relating to VAT. The advice we provide is honed by over 50 years of experience of working within the field of VAT.

Accountants and Solicitors

You can be assured that you are providing accurate advice to your clients without the need for in house expertise. Avoid the risk of not being up to date with developments in the VAT world by using our services.


Remove the worry that your VAT returns and other declarations are incorrect by allowing us to review your systems or to train your staff. Penalties can be severe for non-compliance and simple changes to your operations can effect valuable VAT savings.

Builders, property developers, landlords and architects

The rules relating to VAT on land and property transactions are complex. We can ensure that you arrange your affairs in a way that mitigates your exposure to VAT and gives you an edge over your competitors. We also specialise in DIY builder claims for private individuals.

International Trade

Dealing with the regulations involved with imports, exports and international trade in goods and services means that you have less time to focus on what you are best at. Let us ensure that international sales and purchases are structured to minimise your risk to overseas VAT and so that you know your UK reporting obligations are met. Did you know that many businesses are missing out by not recovering VAT they incur in countries where they have no base? We can arrange these recoveries for you.

Charities and 3rd sector organisations

VAT for these non-profit making organisations is often difficult to understand and time consuming to manage. We can help by advising you how VAT should be dealt with in your organisation and by ensuring that you maximise the reliefs available to you.
