How we help Practice
My VIP Tax Team for Practice is an extension to your firm's tax offering, featuring premium tax consultancy support to upskill your staff, enhance your services, and grow your practice. Key benefits include a priority advice line for quick answers to technical queries, email advice for times where you want a fast response in writing, and written tax consultancy on most areas any general practice will require.
Your exclusive package includes:
VIP priority advice line
The VIP priority advice line is designed to provide guidance and support for tax and VAT queries and to point you in the right direction. It is manned by some of our most experienced advisors who assist with technical queries. Customers of the priority advice line mainly ask short, sharp tax questions around a subject.
Calls to this service are answered quicker than our regular advice line, allow you to explore options, and have a more in-depth conversation.
VIP email response
Don’t have time to call the VIP priority advice line? Need to ask a question outside working hours? Want the answer in writing? Then the VIP email response service could be for you!
Designed to deal with similar types of questions as the VIP priority advice line, this service provides written replies to short questions that are fully indemnified. None of the time is charged to your account provided we can answer your query within 30 minutes or less.
We aim to turnaround email replies within 24 hours.
VIP Written tax and VAT consultancy
Full written tax consultancy
Our team of VIP tax consultants provide high quality written advice on a wide range of tax matters covering most of the needs of any general practice. Features of our written advice include –
- The scope of our work, a time quote for us to complete the assignment, and the date we will provide our work are agreed in advance
- All written consultancy is peer reviewed by another member of the team
- Our quotes include a small budget to allow for reasonable follow up questions
- Our written advice is fully indemnified
You can also use VIP hours to instruct us to review work you have prepared and want a valued second opinion.
The most common written consultancy assignments include –
- Property business incorporation
- Inheritance tax and trusts
- Loan relationships (corporation tax)
- Capital gains tax on disposals
- VAT – land and property
Typical lead times for consultancy work at 7 to 10 working days from a time quote being accepted and providing all the information we require to commence our work.
Short pieces of consultancy
We have a specialist team who deal with small consultancy assignments (typically 2-5 hours). This team is typically utilised where you want us to review calculations or provide additional support in respect of an advice line of email service reply.
Webinars and eCPD
VIP members are invited to exclusive webinars which cover topical tax issues relating frequently asked questions and work we regularly undertake. The webinars often include case studies where we have saved clients of accountancy practices a substantial amount of tax and helped them to achieve their aims.
Time attending these webinars counts towards CPD.
