Peterborough accountants land national NFU contract

Rawlinsons has landed a contract with the NFU to support farmers struggling with the Government’s mandatory filing systems.

The firm is set to help farmers who don’t have the technology, know how or time to adhere to HMRC’s newly-introduced compulsory online filing of VAT returns.

Rawlinsons’ team of agriculture specialists has decades of experience in the sector, and of working alongside the NFU. It will now be working with farmers from across the country to help ensure they remain compliant.

Rawlinsons will be able to register farming businesses for online filing, complete and submit monthly or quarterly VAT returns direct to HMRC, inform clients what money is owed and advise on payment, and ensure returns are up to date.

“We are delighted to have been selected by the NFU to provide this service to farmers,” said Rawlinsons partner Colin Crowley. “The new rules governing online filing have been giving many farmers cause for concern. As a result of this agreement, through the NFU we can now take on that responsibility for them, giving them peace of mind and freeing up valuable time.”
