Anderson Anderson & Brown LLP (AAB), one of the UK’s leading independent firms of Chartered Accountants & Business Advisors, has announced the launch of their unique VAT Place of Supply Tool, which they have pioneered the development of in-house to assist businesses to ensure that the correct VAT treatment is applied.

The interactive tool, which supports businesses’ existing VAT processes and controls, guides users through the appropriate VAT decision making process. The tool documents that process, providing a clear audit trail which demonstrates to HMRC that reasonable care has been taken. For suppliers, it ensures VAT is only charged when due, avoiding lengthy, and potentially costly, arguments with customers. For customers, it allows the early identification of over charged VAT meaning it can be corrected before it becomes a problem.
