Hello, I'm Phil Middlehurst
I have been providing VAT training to businesses of all sizes for over 14 years, from one man band start ups to FTSE100 corporations. As well as the UK I provide online training (in English) to clients in the EU, Asia and the US.
I am also retained as VAT partner to a number accountancy practices.
As well as keeping abreast of developments in VAT I am also a qualified teacher, and in the past have worked part time teaching AAT and ATT at local colleges.
But don't take my word for it...
We found Phil’s presentation about VAT for Colleges really useful and he managed to make a very dry subject remarkably interesting! The session was interactive with good examples/case studies and he gave us some handy hints about ‘charitable’ VAT exemptions for the education sector. It was a worthwhile event.
Diana Pogson, Director of Finance, Esher College
I found the course very informative and would highly recommend it. It gave me the knowledge I originally wanted, and also uncovered a lot of issues that the company I work for needed to resolve. Due to this the course turned out to be even more essential than I first thought. The support given after the course has also been excellent.
Chris Spencer, Finance Assistant, WTB Group Ltd
Thanks for the online training - this was clear, well-paced and very relevant for us.
Rob Williams, Finance Manager, Newfrontiers (Charity)
Phil's training was a great benefit to me as and certainly met my expectations. It highlighted various items of VAT I was previously unaware of and reaffirmed others were there was perhaps uncertainty. I found the course interesting and easy to follow with extremely good course material and “after course” support.
Pam Morrison, Office Manager, CTS Ltd
I would have no hesitation in recommending Phil for your VAT training and consulting requirements. I was always found VAT to be a bit confusing, but Phil explained things in a step by step way which I found easy to understand

I highly recommend this training for people who need to understand the fundamentals of how the VAT collection and reporting process works and what’s involved in making sure businesses do it right, the first time!
Rick Hillson, Managing Director, 2Connect UK Ltd
VAT on international services was a complex area for us, but Phil broke it down into bite-sized chunks that we found much easier to understand.
Heather Thomas, Financial Controller, Waterstown Ltd
The course was well presented and organised; and the facility to ask questions after the course was extremely useful.

Excellent value for money. I learnt a lot on the day. Kevin McLeod, Managing Director, Maxiflow Ltd
Phil is very patient and encouraged everybody to participate- we are now much more confient in meeting our VAT obligations.
