Deeks VAT Consultancy provides bespoke in-house VAT training services, which are tailored to meet the needs of the individual business and the individuals we are training.
This will minimise the risk of expensive errors and reduce the likelihood of penalties. In some cases, training has even been a requirement of HMRC when looking to suspend a penalty.
Train with us
Under the current penalty regime adequate staff training is evidence of “reasonable care” being taken by the organisation, so if penalties were issued, they are likely to be at a lower level than where there has been no staff training.
However, the best position to be in is to not have a penalty issue at all. This is where training can be vital.
Training can be cost-effective, for example during a recent training event an accounting error was discovered from questions asked by an attendee. As a result, the business was able to recover more than £100,000 in overpaid VAT from HMRC.
