As outlined in previous updates, we are in the process of submitting ‘Fleming’ VAT claims for NHS Trusts prior to the 31 March 2009 deadline.  HMRC accept that any claim will be based upon estimating/extrapolating more recent accounts information and we have a range of methodologies and practices in place to extract the relevant information and formulate a realistic claim relating to a number of key areas.

Some of the claims that we have submitted so far have exceeded £1m.

If you have not yet considered whether a Fleming claim is relevant for your NHS organisation, please contact us as soon as possible.  We would be more than happy to visit at short notice and formulate a claim prior to the deadline.
