Property Service Charge Accounting

Property Service Charges

Property service charge accounting and reporting is a very important element of property management, for property owners, managers and occupiers.

      All too often we find that the VAT status of commercial and mixed-use estates has been set up incorrectly. As an additional comfort for our clients, for each estate we take on as a client we will undertake a VAT status review at no charge. This is all part of our client commitment to ensure that there are no unexpected surprises down the line.

      We would be delighted to have the opportunity to have a no fee nor obligation discussion with you on how we work with our clients to achieve excellent satisfaction.
