North of England gets help with VAT returns

Businesses in the North of England are set to benefit from a Customs & Excise programme to help them with their VAT returns, due by the end of September.

Across the UK more than 200,000 firms submit their return late, leading to huge amounts of uncertainty.

‘Customs will be contacting local businesses to offer assistance, especially those with late or missing paperwork, either by telephone or knocking on doors to speak to people directly about their VAT returns,’ said Ian Wade, Customs and Excise senior business manager.

‘We provide lots of help and advice to business folk who find VAT confusing. It’s always better to send the return in and talk to Customs about payment problems, rather than not send the return at all.’
