Businesses involved in the financial services sector are often concerned that VAT incurred on their purchases should not become an irrecoverable cost.

VAT exemption is often crucial to the success of business models involving dealing with other financial services providers or members of the public.

We specialise in financial services VAT matters. If you are a provider or intermediary in the provision of financial services, we can help you with our pro-active and commercial approach.

We have a team of experts who are experienced in financial services matters. We have helped financial services businesses reduce cost through negotiation and agreement of partial exemption special methods, and favourable rulings on the treatment of income and commissions.

Our international experience and familiarity with offshore structures can be invaluable when you are considering how best to structure your operations and contract with third party suppliers of goods and services.
