Value Added Tax (VAT)

We offer an efficient and cost effective service in all aspects of VAT.

We can register your business, complete and submit your VAT Returns online and calculate amount payable to/repayable by HMRC ensuring you comply with all the regulations laid down by H M Revenue & Customs.


Here at Charles Rowan Accountants we realise that the ever changing regulations of HM Revenue & Customs means VAT compliance can be a difficult process.

Whether you’re just starting out or have been in business for a long time Charles Rowan Accountants can help you meet your VAT responsibilities.

We have a wealth of knowledge in this area and can ensure that you comply with all the VAT regulations. We offer a comprehensive cost effective VAT service covering the following areas.

  • Registration & De-Registration
  • Completion Of Monthly, Quarterly & Annual VAT Returns
  • VAT Control & Reconciliation
  • Negotiate With HM Revenue & Customs
  • Representation At VAT Tribunals
Business Start Up

If you’re just starting out, we can help you decide whether you need to be VAT registered from the outset or not. And we will continue to monitor your situation, so that should it become obligatory for you to register for VAT we can deal with all of the paperwork for you. In contrast we will also monitor your position for when we think you are able to and would benefit from deregistering.

New Or Existing Business

Whether a new or existing business, we will also look at the VAT schemes you are eligible for and establish whether you would be better off adopting one or a mixture of them. Some VAT schemes can lead to tax savings and a reduction in bookkeeping responsibilities.

VAT Return

We can prepare your VAT return; either from your own bookkeeping records or we can take care of your record keeping and the VAT return. And we will try to ensure that you claim as much VAT as possible; particularly on contentious items such as mixed use expenditure and motor running costs.

Agent For Tax

As with other areas of tax, we can act as your Agent for VAT purposes and therefore correspond with HMRC on your behalf. Paper VAT returns are pretty scarce now but our software also allows us to file your VAT returns online with HMRC.

Needless to say, late VAT registration, errors, late VAT returns and late Vat payments can all lead to penalties and possibly interest being charged. So allowing us to take care of your VAT affairs, not only gives you peace of mind, but it should avoid you wasting your hard earned cash on penalties and interest.
