In many cases it is not difficult for a business to comply with it’s VAT obligations. However, in some areas VAT can be very complex. Particularly which VAT scheme will benefit your business most such as;

  • Annual Accounting Scheme
  • Cash Accounting Scheme
  • Flat Rate Scheme
  • VAT Retail Schemes
    • Point of sale scheme
    • Apportionment scheme
    • Direct calculation scheme
    • Bespoke retail scheme

We will ensure that you do not fall foul of the regulations by explaining to you which transactions are exempt from VAT, VAT zero rated, VAT standard rated or charged at another VAT rate such as the reduced rate.

We will also explain the effect that these differences will have on your business, and how you can mitigate any disadvantages that the rules may impose on you.

This complexity is particularly significant when looking at land and property. An error in this area can cripple a business, particularly in view of the size of each transaction. We will work with you to minimise this risk to your business.

VAT can have a significant effect on other taxes such as stamp duty, and we will liaise with you to ensure that your affairs are arranged where possible to minimise these effects.

Whatever the size of your business you will be affected by VAT and you will need to consider that impact. We will ensure that your affairs are arranged in the most cost-effective way to mitigate that impact.

  • I was recommended by friend to speak to Brainwave about setting up my own limited company. From forming the company, advising on the strategic Tax planning, the flat rate VAT scheme and PAYE even advice on my contract, company car, I would have to say that they couldn’t have made the process simpler! I’ve got peace of mind from the fact I can contact them at any point during the year for advice and guidance. What’s more all that is for fixed annual fee.
