Project Description

Some time ago, a firm of medical sector VAT specialists, Proactive Consultancy Group, contacted our sister company, Premier Medical Centre, to tell us about a proven, bona fide opportunity to secure a significant repayment of VAT from HMRC.

As a partially exempt (for VAT purposes) business operating in the medical sector, we were incurring significant levels of irrecoverable VAT costs. We were, therefore, very interested when this opportunity arose, particularly as there was no up-front commitment of professional fees.

After our initial scepticism, we were quickly reassured not only by Proactive’s technical VAT knowledge and experience but also their ability to complete the work with minimal time inputs from ourselves. They handled the whole process through from data collection/analysis, review of historic returns, and submission/negotiation of the repayment claim with HMRC. At the same time, they kept us informed of progress at all stages in the process.

In recommending their services, we would mention that:-

  • as a first step, Proactive offers a free, no-obligation “Health Check” to see whether a refund is likely. Having discussed with you the results of the Health Check, you then decide whether to proceed. A fee is only payable if and when a VAT recovery is ultimately made and is based on a mutually agreed shared percentage of the amount recovered
  • please note that, through this process, many relatively small, non VAT-registered businesses have made a retrospective, voluntary VAT registration together with a substantial VAT recovery claim, without it affecting the commercial fundamentals of their business e.g. customer prices
  • the average accountant does not always understand the huge complexities and intricacies of VAT as it relates to medical clinics. This is why Premier and so many other medical businesses have turned to Proactive for this particular matter, whilst maintaining a good relationship with their accountants for their ongoing work 
We are now very happy to recommend Proactive as their proven track record has gone from strength to strength.
