Terry Fendt
Partner & Head of Commercial Property at Sherrards Solicitors LLP
“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

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
“I have been very pleased indeed with the service provided by AVS which has been responsive, clear, provided speedily and in a friendly manner and enabled me to respond to my clients' needs when required. AVS have been extremely pleasant to deal with. I would recommend their services.”
Charles Hodder
Sherrards Solicitors LLP
“Melanie Lord is a very gifted specialist in VAT matters, and will if it is at all possible find a way out of difficulties, at a reasonable cost. Highly recommended.”
Les Breathwick
Commercial property client
“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.”
