MEET THE TEAM

VAT & Customs

With two senior members of our team having previously worked in dedicated positions in HMRC and local authorities, the VAT team at UNW are extremely well placed to provide high quality advice on any VAT related topic that you may require.

Our advice is distinctive in that complex issues are explained in a clear, commercial and pragmatic way, in a manner much appreciated by clients – we do not sit on the fence by using the words “might” and “should”, but instead provide definitive advice and opinion.

An added facet to our service is providing support for businesses in disagreement with HMRC, including advocacy in Tax Tribunals. Testament to the high regard people have of our VAT team is the wide range of clients who choose UNW as their retained VAT adviser.
