Do I need a VAT Agent?
The rules for VAT are constantly changing, and it can be difficult for businesses without a dedicated VAT resource to keep a track of new case law, evolving HMRC interpretation, and new legislation. If errors are made on your VAT returns you could be in for a surprise further down the line. However, there are opportunities open to companies that are able to keep on top of these changes: you may be paying too much VAT or not reclaiming enough, and therefore may be due a hefty repayment.
