VAT Services for the Healthcare Sector

+ View Our Services

We are a specialist indirect tax services provider, operating almost exclusively in the healthcare sector since 2004. We use our very specific care sector knowledge, combined with our in depth VAT expertise and our network of contacts, to provide a professional service tailored to the unique needs of each of our clients.

Why VAT Solutions…

Our understanding of the healthcare sector, acquired over years of professional practice, allows our dedicated team to mitigate VAT risk and maximise VAT opportunity.

We provide retrospective, present and forward-looking opportunities, fully supported by the UK’s leading tax counsel and our sector regulatory lawyers.

VAT Solutions has built strong working relationships with all major key stakeholders in the sector including local authority finance teams, clinical commissioning groups, CQC and, inevitably, HMRC.

Our clients range from small owner-managed care businesses through to the largest national operators and we cover the entire spectrum of care provision including both nursing and residential, care of the elderly, learning disability, mental health and children’s services.

  • Our service is bespoke to each of our clients – we recognise that every care business is unique.
  • Our team, some of whom are ex HMRC specialists, not only have up to date VAT expertise, but also have the extensive care sector knowledge to enable us to optimise your commercial VAT position.
  • We are fully supported by eminent tax counsel (with licensed direct access through Bar Standards) and respected sector regulatory opinion.
  • We handle full disclosure to HMRC regarding your business and, using our historical stance of positive dialogue, we liaise directly on your behalf.
  • We will supply references from our current clients and will arrange for you to speak to them in person so that you can validate our reputation in the sector.
  • We are transparent. We will readily share our full business disclosure pack for your due diligence purposes and share our trading history.
  • We understand sector funding streams, and all of our work is underpinned by our strong relationships with local authorities, clinical commissioning groups and health trusts (NI) throughout the UK.
  • For our ‘not for profit’ and charitable sector clients, we fully understand and apply the specific nuances related to your particular care provision.
