Carol Hallam - Menzies Accountant


VAT advisory

Sector experience

Hospitality & leisure


I am a VAT specialist, and regularly advise on property transactions and development projects, as well as the supply of goods and services for international business transactions.

I assist overseas businesses to register for VAT in the UK and to identify VAT issues from the outset, so that they can remain compliant from the outset of UK trading. I assist UK businesses with overseas VAT as part of the HLB International network.

I also work closely with Menzies’ Outsourced accounts team, assisting them with VAT return, EC Sales List and Intrastat queries.

I have worked in practice since 1999. Initially I was a mixed direct tax practitioner with experience of personal tax, corporate tax, payroll and employee benefits. I specialised in VAT advisory in 2010.
