The complexity of VAT means it is worth investing in high quality advice. Whether you are UK-focused or an international business, we have a team of experts with the knowledge you need for even the most complex sectors including property, finance and charities.

We directly advise businesses across many industries, including those with particularly complex VAT legislation, such as the property, charitable and financial sectors.

You can get specialist VAT advice for businesses in the UK or overseas from BKL. We also act as VAT consultants for accountancy practices who do not have their own in-house specialist.

We provide efficient, confidential and friendly advice at competitive rates.
