About Essential VAT Services

Essential VAT Services was formed by Allison Broadey and Peter Baumgardt in 2011 having both been former Directors of a specialist VAT consultancy practice.

Allison started her VAT career in HM Customs and Excise (now HMRC) as a VAT visiting officer. During this time she gained significant experience with the administration of VAT, control of large businesses and appeals and enquiry work.

Following 12 years with HMRC, Allison joined PwC (legacy Cooper & Lybrand) and in 1999 she joined a private VAT practice in Hampshire. For the last 21 years she has offered practical VAT advice and solutions to professionals and businesses from PLC's to one man bands.

Her specialisms include advising on land and property, international transactions and charities. She has lectured on VAT to ACCA branches and trade bodies, as well as having written specialist VAT chapters in publications such as The Law Society's Conveyancing Handbook, Farming and Land Diversification and Equine Tax Planning.

Her VAT advisory services now focus on assisting Accountancy and Professional Bodies with much needed VAT advice but with a clear and practical approach. 


Peter Baumgardt retired to a life of gardening and golf on 31st May 2018 and Allison now manages the advisory and consultancy business which continues to grow from strength to strength.
