Support for that vital conversation
Whether it’s with HMRC or a counter-party, you cannot undo a false start
NEGOTIATING: Helping you argue your corner
Whether it is with HMRC or with customers and suppliers, the time comes when there has to be a conversation which involves VAT or other taxes. These conversations are stressful. It is always worth having a trusted adviser on hand to guide you through. An adviser can help by priming you, or by being in the negotiating room alongside you. Either way, you want to be sure that the adviser is with you, not cheering you on from behind the lines!
City & Cambridge Consultancy is very experienced in supporting clients in these conversations, and has a solid track record of putting clients’ cases strongly and successfully to HMRC and others. The results speak for themselves. Graham Elliott, our director, has been involved recently in a £5m recovery of under-claimed VAT, has successfully defended an HMRC attack on the gift aid status of charity donations where the gift aid was worth £600k per year, has resisted HMRC’s erroneous attempt to wrestle £1.6m from a property business, and has many other similar examples of success to his credit.
Do not accept HMRC’s ruling, assessment, or ‘advice’ without checking it with City & Cambridge first. If you can defend your position, and it is cost effective to do so, City & Cambridge will walk with you on that journey.
An experienced negotiator who knows when to cajole, when to persuade, and when to throw down the gauntlet
