VAT is one of the most complex and continually evolving taxes. Friend’s tax team therefore ensures clients have access to advice and support, including VAT compliance, planning and liaison with H M Revenue & Customs.

The partners at Friend understand the complexities of VAT and the problems that businesses may face along with potential solutions for those problems, which often identify real opportunities for making VAT savings and improving the cash flow of the business.

A business needs to be carefully managed in respect of indirect taxes at all stages of its development, from the initial registration for VAT through to growth and expansion and, finally, disposal. We understand that business stakeholders want the comfort of knowing that their indirect tax affairs are being handled efficiently, without having to heavily involve themselves in the complexities of the process. Friend is able to assist you with all aspects of indirect tax advisory and at all stages of the growth cycle of the business. We can also advise on Stamp Duty Land Tax where individuals or companies are acquiring property or reorganising their property holdings.
