The independent force in global and UK VAT and customs advice

We give our clients best advice on all aspects of UK and global VAT & customs duty, whether you are a global head of indirect tax or a sole trader we help to reduce the cost of VAT and duties, simplify procedures and ensure compliance.


VAT Risk Management and Control

The key to having robust VAT controls lies firstly in understanding the end to end VAT processes and controls within the business.

Ad hoc UK and Global Advisory

It is vital that businesses trading cross border in goods and services are aware of the VAT treatment applying to their specific transactions.


Our Helplines are tailored to suit the needs of clients and so could be focused on UK issues, or equally could be used to deal with global VAT and duty issues.


Our client base spans a really broad range of industries – a handful of the most common industry sectors we provide VAT and customs duty advice to are shown here. If your sector isn’t featured, give us a call and we are still likely to be able to help.
