VAT Services for the NHS
Proper accounting for VAT is an indispensable element of the efficient running of the NHS. As a leading provider of VAT services to the NHS, CRS VAT Consulting is extremely well placed to provide a full range of VAT review, recovery and advisory services to assist NHS bodies in getting VAT right.
With VAT at 20% on non-pay running costs and the possibility of error penalties, it is important that NHS bodies account for VAT correctly from the outset. If left unchecked, VAT errors can result in underfunding of essential services, or could lead to penalties.
Our dedicated team of NHS VAT advisers has extensive knowledge and experience of the VAT issues facing the NHS. We are also able to provide day-to-day assistance with VAT enquiries, assistance and advice on setting up contracts and tailored VAT training workshops focused on specific or general NHS VAT issues.
Our main emphasis is technical VAT expertise gained by building a strong team of VAT professionals from within the global accounting industry and HM Revenue & Customs. This is key to providing an all encompassing VAT service for our NHS clients.
CRS VAT Consulting is registered with the Chartered Institute of Taxation as a firm of Chartered Tax Advisers. This means our clients have peace of mind in the fact that they are dealing with suitably trained and qualified advisers.
We maintain a 100% success rate of improving our client’s VAT savings. Additional savings result from ‘secondary’ reviews of areas previously reviewed by our competitors.
Our services are designed to maximise VAT recovery on a regular basis, and to help minimise VAT liabilities and errors which could result in penalties.
We appreciate that in-house VAT knowledge and expertise varies between different NHS organisations, so our VAT recovery and compliance services are flexible and tailored to the needs of our clients.
