Pensions VAT

VAT can be a particularly complex area and we come across a number of cases each year where VAT is being incorrectly treated. This can mean the scheme under-claims and loses out on valuable funds, or even more worrying, is over-claiming and may be suddenly hit with a VAT bill following an inspection by HMRC.

Our VAT reviews can identify these errors and correct them before any damage is done. The review also looks at the big picture and will assess whether it is worthwhile for the pension scheme to register for VAT itself.
