My Hero


VAT can be the bane of everyone affected by it.

The complex regime of regulations imposes a tremendous administrative burden on businesses.

With the rate being so high, mistakes in calculating VAT can be costly – and the rigid system of surcharges and interest charges for mistakes, as well as the late submission of returns, only add to that burden.

Hicks and Company’s cost-effective VAT compliance and planning services can relieve you of this burden. Our team of VAT professionals will help to keep your VAT affairs in order, making sure you are collecting the right amount for each transaction while ensuring that you are making payments and filing returns correctly and on time.

In addition to providing a comprehensive bookkeeping and VAT accounting service, we can also advise on and help with:

• The pros and cons of voluntary registration
• The timing of compulsory registration
• Option to tax property

• Timing of VAT payments
• Flat-rate and margin VAT schemes
