Centurion VAT Specialists are an independent specialist VAT consultancy offering an individually tailored, cost-effective and VAT-efficient service,


Specialists in VAT for the Charity Sector our team advises a wide range of charities delivering Education, Housing, Health, Welfare, Cultural or Sporting provisions to their communities.

Charities have to deal with the same complex VAT issues as any other organisation yet often are under resourced in terms of finance support and need access to Expert VAT support in a flexible and cost-effective manner.


The Charity sector is diverse in its operation, as are the VAT issues they face. Common themes do emerge however and the Centurion Charity VAT Specialists bring 30+ years of experience to help resolve them.

Our specialist team offer support in dealing directly with HMRC on behalf of our client to VAT Health check reviews which will deliver the assurance of good compliance a Trustee is seeking or may identify areas where VAT savings could exist.

Getting ready for Making VAT Digital, devising Partial Exemption or Non-Business calculations, development or refurbishment projects are all areas where complex VAT issues arise.

Whatever your VAT needs we are here to help. Our services include VAT consultancy, Compliance, Help Lines, VAT Training, Income and Expenditure reviews for charities.


Established in 1998, Centurion has three times been in the National Taxation Awards final, for Best UK VAT Team.  Centurion VAT Specialists are celebrating 20 years, this year which is a strong testament of our success.


“Centurion has provided VAT consultancy services to Cardiff Metropolitan University for over 15 years.  During that time their services have included the provision of advice and guidance on all aspects of VAT as it applies to the higher education sector; the negotiation with HMRC of the University’s partial exemption special method and VAT recovery on capital schemes; and the provision of training to staff both within the Finance Department and across the University.  Such training has been particularly well received as it has been delivered in an interesting and easily understood manner.  Centurion has always provided a reliable and professional service and I have no hesitation in recommending the services they provide.” 

David Llewellyn, Director of Finance, Cardiff Metropolitan University


Thanks for the excellent service and support from Centurion over the two pieces of work we had commissioned recently.
