Value Added Tax (VAT)

VAT advice and support that saves you time and money

Value Added Tax (VAT) Overview

Dealing with Value Added Tax (VAT) can be complex and time-consuming, particularly if your business operation includes goods and services that may be discounted or exempt, or if you trade internationally.

But with the right support and advice, you can reduce the risk of penalties, potentially improve your business cash flow and free up more of your time to focus on your true business objectives.

How we can help

Old Mill’s specialist VAT team works with UK and international businesses on a wide range of VAT-related issues. As well as advising on VAT from registration through to managing your business across the entire supply chain, we will also liaise with other parties on your behalf to secure solutions. Our bespoke advice on VAT issues includes a strong focus on land and property enquiries and international VAT, and our team keeps up-to-date on the constantly changing landscape of VAT legislation – so that you don’t have to.
