Phil Middlehurst


Phil's mission is to help you to stay on the right side of the VAT inspector without paying more VAT than you need to.

If you require VAT advice, with over 20 years experience in all things VAT it is very likely that Phil has first hand experience of your query (although even now will occasionally be pitched a curved ball!) 

Or of you require VAT training, you don't need to choose betwen a VAT expert and a trained teacher- as well as specialising in VAT Phil also holds teaching qualifications.

Nic is chief cook and bottle washer- when you make contact with our practice you are most likely to speak to Nic.


Nic deals with VAT compliance issues- from filing VAT returns, EC Sales Lists and Intrastat through liaising with the VAT inspector in the event of a query through calculating, declaring and submitting corrections for errors in previously filed VAT returns.

Nic also has over 15 years experience in direct taxes, in case your requirement for advice or training extends to PAYE/NI, CIS, SATR or corporation tax.

We found your course extremely helpful and engaging. Philip tailored the course to meet our specific needs of dealing with the complexities of VAT.
