What are VAT Returns?

Value-added tax (VAT) is a tax on the value added to goods and services at each stage of production and distribution. It is a complex tax that requires careful record-keeping and compliance with a range of regulations. VAT returns are the regular reports that businesses must submit to HMRC, detailing the VAT that they have charged and paid during a given period.

Some of our happy clients

Last year my accountant gave up and I tried to do my accounts myself and had left it quite late near to the deadline. Got myself in a mess then (Samantha Stokes) at Cooper Accounting came to my rescue. She did everything in messenger for me. She was very professional and has taken me on as a client.

Sometimes things are just meant to be. Someone you had employed for 20 years gives two weeks notice, leaves the books in a mess, way behind with booking out invoices, VAT quarter due, Payroll and PAYE to sort out. Desperate for a bookkeeper AND THEN I was recommended Samantha Stokes at Cooper Accounting…WHAT A FIND!! Invoices now being sent out, money coming in quicker, old debt being chased, taxman being sorted out. Every business should have a Samantha Stokes!
