VAT consultancy service welcomed by NHS
In August of this year, we rolled out our new VAT Consultancy Service. As the NHS faces increasing financial pressures, our service aims to ensure VAT compliance at the best value, whilst enabling potential savings of hundreds of thousands of pounds per organisation.
In August we launched our new VAT Consultancy Service which aims to provide a quality service which offers exceptional value for money. Our vision is to offer clients a bespoke service which includes all their VAT requirements, making NHS Shared Business Services your one-stop-shop for VAT.
Our senior VAT consultants are highly experienced in providing typical extended VAT compliance services such as COS reviews, review of income liabilities, line-by-line capital reviews and partial exemption as well as ad-hoc VAT advice ranging from contract reviews, liaison with HMRC and advice regarding restructuring - in particular STPs.
NHS Dudley Commissioning Group (CCG) - responsible for planning and buying healthcare services for 315,000 residents - went live with our bespoke VAT automation system in the 2016-17 financial year and have so far saved around £40,000 in under-claims alone. This saving equates to the total annual healthcare budget for around 27 residents in the area.
The diagram below highlights some of the services we offer - either on a one-off basis, or tailored to an individual package to suit your needs. We realise the VAT support you need may be very different to another NHS organisation, so we have developed a comprehensive consultancy service, delivering VAT support at the best value, at the right time.
The service also includes free VAT seminars for our clients to find out more about the latest NHS VAT topics, updates to guidance and provides an opportunity to network with your colleagues. The first round of seminars took place in mid-October and we were extremely pleased to see all seminars fully booked. We will be holding the next series of seminars in February in London, Leeds and Birmingham.
Our new bi-monthly newsletter also covers relevant NHS VAT topics. If you wish to sign up to receive the newsletter, you can do so by clicking here.
