Our clients appreciate that our culture is not driven by chargeable hours or utilisation targets; we take pleasure in adding value to their businesses and quickly become the first point of contact when VAT questions arise.

We currently support a wide range of clients many of whom have been with us since Centurion was formed in 1998.

With sector specialists within our award-winning Centurion team, we can offer dedicated support to local authorities, universities & colleges of further education, housing associations, all types of charities and social enterprises and a wide variety of national and international corporate businesses.  In 2020 we have also added further Indirect Tax specialisms into our team with expertise now available across all Environmental taxes such as Climate Change Levy, Landfill Tax and Air Passenger Duty.

Centurion also supports other professional services firms – accountants, lawyers and direct tax advisory firms with helpline support to enable them to ensure VAT issues arising for their clients are resolved effectively.

Centurion VAT is part of The Xeinadin Group and a member of the ICAEW Practice Assurance Scheme. The Xeinadin Group is an extensive group of more than 1,500 advisors spanning the UK and Ireland. Xeinadin Group helps entrepreneurs, SME’s, corporations and not-for-profit organisations achieve their goals and mission. Through unmatched collaboration and innovation, we support and inspire you to reach your strategic business goals or accomplish the mission of your organisation. Xeinadin has a global reach and knowledge but works locally with a personal touch!

Meet the team

Made up of VAT experts, we offer our clients over 145 years collective experience in the field of VAT, including expertise drawn from many years with the ‘big four’, as well as in industry and HM Revenue & Customs.

Between us, we have experience and knowledge gained from time spent within the VAT departments of some of the world’s largest accountancy firms, but as a team, we are now small enough to provide dedicated and bespoke advice, and to create lasting business relationships.
