Happy Clients

“We would like to express our appreciation to Melanie Lord at AVS. Due to a warehouse purchase, we had a rather large refund to apply for from HMRC. Due to recent business changes and complications, this was complicated and carried the risk of possible failure which we could not risk. Melanie explained, reassured and guided us through the minefield that is VAT, and dealt with our solicitors too.  We can not recommend her highly enough. Lovely lady and very easy to talk to.”

Alison and Scott Harris

Harris Trucking Storage

“The easy to understand and explanations in layman’s terms of some of the complex VAT issues. A very personal service, understanding of client’s needs.”

Neil Aitken

FD Centre/Magpas

“Very clear communication of an intrinsically difficult and complex subject ie VAT.”

Victoria Logue

Guiting Manor Amenity Trust

“I worked with Melanie Lord on a complex VAT issue for a mutual client. Her ability to take difficult and technical issues and explain them in a way which the clients (and even their simple lawyer!) could understand was outstanding. She very quickly grasped what the clients were trying to achieve commercially and worked tenaciously to come up with a solution that worked. Melanie is, in addition, an absolute pleasure to work with.”

Derek Rodgers

Managing Partner, Gardner Leader Solicitors

“VAT and property is so complicated we need specialist support. Melanie Lord has helped us since 1999 give best client advice so they avoid problems and get the best answer. As a result we all look good – no hesitation in recommending her.”

Terry Fendt
