Top Accountancy Firm Employs Outside the Box Solution for VAT Advisory Recruitment Problem

A top, 100 full-service accountancy practice, was struggling to recruit a replacement for their only VAT consultant. It isn’t an uncommon scenario within large firms to be reliant on a very small VAT team. The collaborative nature of VAT means larger VAT teams will, for many VAT consultants, have a greater appeal due to the desire to work as part of a team on solution-based advice.

Increased VAT support results in audit client receiving VAT windfall

The VAT Team was recently engaged by a full-service accountancy firm to give the VAT department the capacity to support the firm’s audit function. Being a full-service accountancy firm, priding themselves on their proactive service, they needed additional specialist VAT capacity to review the VAT affairs of some of their more complex clients.

The VAT Team was able to support the in-house VAT provision, by working directly with the audit partners to identify potential clients that would benefit from a VAT specialist review of the VAT section of the audit documentation.
