Independent advice combined with sound experience

The VAT Consultancy, which was established by John Crawford in 1991, is the country’s leading independent dedicated VAT and customs duty practice, giving best advice on all aspects of UK and international indirect tax matters.

Our consultants have varied backgrounds, having worked for HMRC, the Big 4 and also within VAT teams in industry, both in the UK and overseas. We feel this provides us with a unique insight into the way in which VAT and customs duty impacts businesses and importantly how to provide pragmatic solutions that add value.

The VAT Consultancy was voted "The Best Tax Team in a Boutique Firm" at the LexisNexis Taxation Awards in 2009.

We are regularly called upon to provide specialist commentary on VAT issues for international and national media, having appeared on the BBC News Channel and BBC Radio 5 Live.
