Becoming registered for VAT for a Cricket Club is not trivial but certainly worthwhile. Over the last few years the Slinfold Village Cricket Club have been working towards building a new... More Clubhouse, a major event for us involving a substantial spend when funds are limited. To strengthen our position we decided to explore the opportunity of VAT recovery as, like most clubs, we were not registered. I have used Kreston Reaves over the years to give advice on various financial matters and we decided to engage with them - it is a local firm that’s large enough to have the necessary expert resources on VAT but it’s not overly expensive. It was also clear right from the first meeting with their VAT partner, Rupert Moyle, that there was significant experience in handling property matters along with an understanding of not-for-profit organisations. The advice was clear and thorough, with an excellent outcome. Rupert and his team enabled us to achieve a great result, and I have to say that their approach has been both professional and down to earth. The outcome has made a material contribution to the project. Without hesitation I would recommend their services. John Whybrow, President, Slinfold Cricket Club

We asked Kreston Reeves’ charity VAT specialists to review our VAT as we hadn’t looked at this area for a few years. Rupert and Daniel not only showed a great... More understanding of us, they demonstrated considerable technical ability, creative solutions and explained the issues and recommendations to us clearly, simply. They successfully negotiated a fantastic outcome for our charity with HMRC, which means that we will have a lot more money to use to support our charitable aims in the coming years. I would certainly recommend a VAT review, and by them. Rebecca Nash, Director, Royal Engineers Museum
Rupert Moyle was a delight to work with. We were facing some very complex VAT issues and Rupert used his considerable experience to guide and support us to a very... More satisfactory conclusion. He has the ability to condense difficult challenges into something non-specialists can relate to and I would highly recommend Kreston Reeves. Marcel Jenkins, Finance & Operations Director, Studio Wayne McGregor
I would like to thank Rupert and the Kreston Reeves VAT team for their work on a complex matter with HMRC regarding whether a key product line was subject to... More VAT.
