Introducing Michele Harris | VAT Specialist

We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the latest member of our team, Michele Harris. With an impressive background working as a VAT inspector with HMRC for nearly 30 years, Michele brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to all areas of tax; from VAT enquiries to general inspections and task force work.
 
VAT Specialist in Hitchin, VAT advisor,
 
Michele works exclusively in providing VAT consultancy services to both domestic and international clients here at Bracey’s. Her long and varied career with HMRC means that she brings a sound, practical and considered approach to tackling and solving VAT issues.
 
Background
 
“I have inspected accounting systems at both an Officer and Higher Officer level, examining the records of small and medium-sized businesses (from £10,000 to £50 million turnover), and building up a wealth of knowledge in accounting practices and VAT-based matters, including partial exemption and VAT liability.
 
“I later moved to a team that examined the records of businesses wishing to reclaim money from Revenue and Customs. It was great! These businesses are extremely varied in nature and might involve partial exemption on one day, international services the next and subcontractors on another day.”
 
Why Bracey’s Accountants?
 
“I feel this was the right move for me, personally. Bracey’s is a really proactive firm positioned to help small and medium-sized businesses, and it’s that kind of environment that I really wanted to be part of. I didn’t feel that HMRC was helping businesses to get their tax right.
 
“In my experience, businesses need help with the minefield that can be VAT legislation, but when someone writes to HMRC they can wait for eight weeks for a reply. I get immense satisfaction from knowing that the services I can offer with Bracey’s can achieve speedy resolutions to matters involving VAT legislation. This leaves business owners free to do what they do best.
