VAT Assessments and Penalties


Do not assume your HMRC penalty or assessment is correct.   If you have received an assessment or VAT Penalty Notice which you would like to look into further,

Please Contact Us for expert advice.

When an assessment for under-declared VAT is raised, you or your client will need expert help.

We will negotiate with HM Revenue and Customs to achieve an acceptable settlement. If, however, HMRC are not reasonable, we can challenge their decision and present your case before the VAT and Duties Tribunal.

Penalties for failing to register, misdeclarations (or repeated misdeclarations) and surcharges for late VAT returns can be waived if there is a reasonable excuse for the conduct giving rise to the penalty or surcharge.

Some penalties may be mitigated by large percentages, even where the conduct is somewhat less than reasonable.
