Value Added Tax
VAT return is not something to put off until the very last hour of the very last day. Our system allows you to generate your VAT return for the quarter quickly and accurately, as long as you keep your books of accounts up to date. VAT is a tax on transactions, not their results. We maintain your VAT-related accounts in such a way that they are recorded separately, so as to tie up with your VAT summary. For example:
- All standard-rated goods and services you receive or supply
- Any tax exempt supplies you make
- All zero-rated goods and services
We can also deal with your VAT returns for each quarter and file them online, which gives you the following benefits:
- It is simpler and quicker than paper
- Online checks help complete correct VAT returns
- You have an extra seven days to submit your VAT return
- Immediate confirmation and receipt of your VAT return
We can register you for online VAT FREE. We also cater to special VAT needs, depending on the nature of your business and whether you use any special accounting schemes such as:
- Retail Scheme
- Cash Accounting Scheme
- Second Hand Schemes
If your company supplies goods to traders in another EC country, we can send an electronic copy of your EC Sales List declaration to Customs and Excise.
This service is applicable only to Limited Companies, where corporation tax is paid on their profits.
Tax compliance requires considerable time and effort (especially gathering data) and the process should be as efficient as possible. The Inland Revenue are increasingly focusing on the way that data is collected from the accounting system, as well as looking at the data itself. We constantly update your books of accounts with regard to all company expenditure and income in order to work out your precise corporation tax liability You have the security of knowing that we file an accurate return on your behalf, so you can pay tax on time and avoid penalty and interest.
We also maintain details of all your receipts and expenses, sales and purchases and all other supporting documents which you are legally obliged to supply with your company tax return. Our processes are highly integrated - we avoid transfer of accounting data to manual analysis spreadsheets and then into tax computation software, a process which we believe leads to inaccuracies and errors. We can calculate your corporation tax liability according to the prevailing statute and can fill your self assessment Company Tax Return Form CT 600 for submission to HM Revenue & Customs.
With your authorisation, we can file your Company Tax returns online. We can provide all the details required for the preparation and submission of tax computations, correspondence and agreement of the company's tax liabilities to your tax consultants. This means that they deal with your corporation tax matters more quickly and efficiently. We also send email reminders of the dates to submit the tax return and pay corporation tax.
