VAT RETURNS

VAT can be the bane of everyone affected by it.

Whether you are in the education services sector, financial services, deal in goods, immovable property, import and export, travel agents and tour operators acting as principal or whatever the nature of your business - we can help and guide you. 

 

With the rate being so high, mistakes in calculating VAT can be costly, and the rigid system of penalties, interest charges for mistakes and the late submission of returns add to that burden. 

 

Our cost-effective VAT compliance and planning services can relieve you of this burden. 

 

Our team of VAT professionals will help to keep your VAT affairs in order, making sure you are collecting the right amounts for each transaction, and ensure that you make payments and file returns correctly and on time. 

We can help you with:

  • The pros and cons of voluntary registration 

  • The timing of compulsory registration 

  • Extracting maximum benefit from the rules on de-registration 

  • Partial exemption 

  • Timing and delaying VAT payments 

  • VAT on imports and exports 

  • VAT control visits by the authorities

BUSINESS PLANNING

It is often said that, "failing to plan is planning to fail." 
 
As a business owner you have no doubt been reminded on more than one occasion of the importance of business planning, and no doubt you agree that planning is important. 
 
Yet in all probability you rarely seem to find the time to sit down and develop strategic plans but end up flying by the seat of your pants, trusting your intuitions and relying on snap judgments rather than adhering to a pre-arranged strategy. 
 
Not that we would deprecate such intuitions. Experience has taught us that it is precisely this 'sixth sense' that many business owners and managers seem to possess that is the driving force behind entrepreneurship - and we have learned to take it seriously. 
 
But, the planning is important. Without sound analysis, clear projections, and well-thought out contingencies, businesses tend to become hostages to fortune. 
 
Proactive management is replaced by reactive coping, and instead of following a well-thought-out plan, owners and managers are reduced to responding to unforeseen events, or trying to catch up on missed opportunities. This is why we encourage our clients to schedule regular planning sessions. 

 

We can help you with:

  • Formulate and implement long-term strategic goals 

  • Set concrete operational objectives 

  • Monitor performance and adjust plans accordingly

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

We can assist you with international employment law by looking after all your requirements for your staff welfare.
