Extreme caution advised

I sough online chat advice from this company today, the information I was given regarding export VAT charges was completely incorrect and misleading. My query was, after Jan1 if a UK company exports a piece of machinery from the UK to The Republic of Ireland, will the exporting UK company be obliged to charge UK VAT, the answer came back, yes UK Vat will have to be charged. This information is incorrect and misleading as there is no instrument for an EU company to claim back UK VAT post Jan1. UK Exporters do not charge VAT to EU companies. A lot of the questions from the rep revolved around what products our company were selling which was not relevant to the question, what was our annual turnover, again not relevant, I can only assume why they wanted to know our turnover! none of this information was given. I would advise the utmost caution in dealing with this company. We will not be using their services.

They are the worst company ever..

They are the worst company ever... ...that we have dealt with. They don't care about our needs. They have no urgency to resolve matters. They provide inaccurate information and... ...I have spent to much time wasted with this company so will cut this review short and not waste any more.

Worse International VAT Advisors

Absolutely the worse international VAT advisors we have ever worked with. They don't give any phone support and emails take 2-3 weeks for replies. This results in late payment/filing fines which they promise to pay but never do. Wish I'd never moved to this company, I advise you to avoid. When thing are ok, it's highly automated but when things go wrong... you'll wish you'd never met them.
