Business owners are no strangers to Value Added Tax (VAT). But plenty of them struggle with keeping their records up to date.


We don’t want to scare you, but HMRC will be quick to notice if you’re not on top of your VAT returns. And we know from experience that it’s almost impossible to accurately calculate your VAT liability if you’re working from incomplete or incorrect information. That’s why it makes so much sense to leave your VAT affairs in the more-than-capable hands of the team here at Abacus Accountancy.

Not currently VAT registered?


If you’re enjoying healthy growth and you’re quickly heading towards the current VAT threshold, it could be time to take the plunge and register with HMRC. The team at Abacus can help you explore your options at this exciting stage.


Acting in your best interests, we will review all of the VAT schemes that are available to you, work out which ones you’re eligible for, and assess whether or not you will benefit from joining a single programme or a number of them. We can then submit your application on your behalf, ensuring that everything is set up correctly from day one.


Already VAT registered?


If your company is already VAT registered, you’ll already have a good understanding of your responsibilities in this area. You’ll know that you need to stay on top of your records to make sure you have all the information to hand when the deadlines roll around again.


Having a dedicated VAT tax agent at the other end of the phone really does take the hassle out of the entire process. We will work tirelessly to make sure your data is up to date, we’ll confidently liaise with HMRC on your behalf, and, when the time comes, we’ll make sure we have everything we need to produce accurate VAT returns for your company.


Our priority is to ensure that your VAT returns are completed and submitted on or before the due dates to ensure you’re not exposing yourself to late payment interest or penalties. But our role doesn’t end there. If you have any questions, or you want to sit down and discuss your situation with somebody in a friendly, relaxed environment, you’re always welcome to visit our offices for a chat. It’s the honest, transparent and approachable elements of our Essex VAT returns service that appeal to our clients the most!
