Specialist VAT advice can really make a difference.


We recognise that Value Added Tax is a complex area to understand. The wrong move can cost you in penalties, or you could lose out on claims which you are entitled to.

Hazlewoods can guide you through the labyrinth of complex laws, to ensure that you are not missing out or, indeed, leaving yourself open to any potential penalties.

Our in-depth knowledge and experience allows us to fully understand your needs, so that we really can provide you with the right advice.

Our compliance services include:

  • Helping you determine whether you need to register for VAT
  • Registering for VAT
  • Completion of VAT Returns
  • Helping you determine whether any of the available HMRC VAT schemes would be beneficial to your business.
  • For example:
    • Flat rate VAT scheme 
    • Annual accounting VAT scheme 
    • Cash accounting VAT scheme 
    • VAT retail schemes 
  • Reviews of particular transactions where complex tax rules apply
  • Reviews of partial exemption agreements and calculations
  • Deregistering for VAT
