James Hurst
VAT Director

With a passion for VAT that goes back to my days working at HM Revenue & Customs, I am dedicated to helping businesses and organisations of all sizes with their VAT matters, regardless of the complexity involved.

Having worked at some of the UK’s leading accountancy firms, where I developed and grew specialist indirect tax teams, I can assist with all aspects of VAT advice and support.

I work closely with clients, predominantly owner-managed businesses, to understand their unique requirements and the specific tax rules that affect them, their company and its trade.

I also have considerable expertise working with third sector and not-for-profit groups, including charities, schools, colleges, professional bodies, housing associations and local authorities.

Thanks to my former role on the VAT panel of the Charity Tax Group, I have an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the unique VAT rules that affect these organisations and can offer advice to ensure that any funding is utilised effectively.

I also work with many other local professionals, including solicitors and smaller firms of accountants, to support their clients with VAT enquiries.

We are also further strengthening connections with accountants and VAT specialists around the world via our close partnership with DFK to help clients with their international VAT requirements.
