Getting started

Click VtaxP this takes your to our online Virtual Tax Partner support portal. You can select a budget or request a quote.

The VtaxP portal is run by our inhouse technical tax team. We ask you to raise your queries via the portal because once the query is on there we can all see it. The fact that it is in writing limits the risk of any misunderstanding or dispute and most importantly, we can all confer (if necessary) or reallocate the query around around our team. We cannot do this via normal email and hence the use of the Virtual Tax Partner portal.
