We used the haysmacintyre tax advisory team to support our application to HMRC for a VAT recovery rate agreement. This was a drawn-out process, with multiple HMRC requests for information that was ultimately resolved satisfactorily. We really appreciated the time that the haysmacintyre team spent working with us on our application; they were patient and helpful, and dedicated senior resources so as to provide expert opinions that greatly helped with the process. They consistently met the HMRC deadlines, and were on hand at all times to answer any related queries that we had. All in all, they made a stressful process much more manageable, and we were very happy with the service we received.
