VAT Assessments and Penalties

No Text

Do not mistakenly assume that a HMRC penalty or assessment cannot be challenged simply because tax has been underdeclared. HMRC frequently make procedural mistakes when isuing assessments. If you have received an assessment or VAT Penalty Notice which you would like a second opinion on just give us a call:

Please Contact Us for expert VAT 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.
