VATflow – our monthly VAT review service

Monthly reviews of your VAT from the market-leading NHS VAT consultancy, recovery and compliance service.

Our NHS VAT consultants make monthly visits to over 270 of the UK’s trusts, health boards and CCGs (that’s over 40% of the NHS).

As a result, these organisations’ financial directors are:

Maximising cash recovery

Our experts maximise recovery without compromising on compliance.

Making more accurate cash flow plans

We find out about future spending plans and think ahead about VAT implications.

Earning a good reputation with HMRC

Accurate and compliant claims give HMRC confidence the organisation is taking ‘reasonable care’.

With over 20 advisors across the UK, our NHS VAT team is the largest in the country. That means we’re able to give each client the benefit of monthly review visits from their own dedicated VAT advisor. There’s no better way to be sure of both finding the maximum opportunities for cash recovery and protecting your organisation from penalties.

Specialist expertise

Every advisor is an advanced practitioner, who work solely on NHS accounts. On top of this, the scale of our operations makes our understanding of NHS VAT second to none. And the more we do, the more we learn. Advisors regularly exchange knowledge and ideas, so every clients benifits.

No risk

Our fees are calculated as a percentage of the gross movement in VAT we achieve for you. No up-front cost. If we don’t find any errors, you pay nothing. And with our six-month trial option, you can see for yourself how much more value we can deliver without having to go through a tender exercise (in most cases).

How VATflow works

Monthly on-site VAT support includes checking and validating every item in your VAT return, analysing gross movements in VAT, providing practical advice, and giving input to strategic VAT planning.

Detailed monthly reports show cash recovered, any outstanding compliance issues, and any additional VAT opportunities.

The same person visits each time, so they get to know your organisation well. You get timely and relevant advice – and your team don’t have to deal with repeat queries.

All work is reviewed internally, to make sure nothing’s missed.

We’re only interested in legitimate VAT recovery and pay careful attention to compliance. As a result of our efforts, a number of clients have been awarded HMRC’s ‘low VAT risk’ status.

Contracts include unlimited access to our VAT helpline; and you can speak to both your VAT advisor and a named tax manager in between visits – at no extra charge.

We provide specialist support for all dealings with HMRC, including inspections.

Regular technical updates plus free CPD accredited client conferences, course and monthly webinars mean you can increase your own team’s knowledge base and stay up to date.
