Value Added Tax
Taxes raised by HMRC relating to employment account for over half the revenue generated by HMRC each year, so it is vital to ensure that your authority is not exposed to any unwelcome surprises. At the same time you should be aware of opportunities to reduce costs.

PSTAX is dedicated to providing high quality Tax advice and consultancy services to local authorities and other section 33 bodies. Our detailed understanding of the specific VAT/Employment Tax issues that local authorities face means that we are well placed to provide advice of the highest quality.
Being a specialist practice enables us to minimise our overheads and, at the same time, ensure that we have everything in place to deliver the best possible service. As a result you can benefit from competitive fees without compromising on the standard of advice and service you receive.
Our consultants have a broad range of experience gained from time with HM Revenue & Customs (formerly HM Customs & Excise), Big 4 accounting firms and Local Authorities.
We are the public sector tax specialists
We recently subscribed to PSTAX and have found the service to be invaluable. Queries are dealt with promptly and responses are always straight forward and easy to understand. It is reassuring to know advice is on the end of an email and we have saved valuable time as the need to extensively research employment tax has greatly reduced.

I am a regular user of the PSTAX VAT Helpline and have always found the advice provided by them to be clear and understandable. The staff are always helpful and never make me feel as though I am wasting their time or being a nuisance with queries, which to them may be very straight forward. I often use the Helpline service to confirm my understanding of a VAT query, which is so much quicker, easier and more reliable than relying on my own research. Their response times are very quick, often within a couple of hours. This is probably the best value subscription we pay each year and I would not be without it.
