BDO LLP has been appointed to provide the free VAT Recovery Advice Service for schemes/projects registered under the P21+ Framework.

This appointment takes effect from 1 April 2015 and will run for duration of the framework, until October 2016.

NHS Trusts will be notified of the VAT Advisor’s details on registering a scheme.

The Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust will continue to provide VAT Recovery Advice to those P21+ Schemes/Projects it has already begun to provide advice on until the Final VAT Recovery Claim has been agreed or any issues arising associated with existing VAT Recovery Claims have been resolved.

The existing VAT Recovery Guidance has been retained (identified as only being for the pre 31 March 2015 VAT Recovery Service) for use by those NHS Clients that have Schemes/Projects that will continue to receive advice from the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust

New P21+ VAT Recovery Guidance has been posted relating to engagement with BDO LLP as there is now a requirement for the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), Call Off Contract and Order Form before any VAT Recovery advice can be provided.  The changes to guidance covers the new process for the engagement of the new P21+ VAT Advisor.
