The Value Added Tax (VAT) is currently an additional 20% cost on top of the quoted fees. The firm has to transfer this tax to the UK government. For example if our quoted fee is £1000, we calculate 20% of £1000 as
£200, and the fees + VAT would be £1200 (£1000+200). In some cases you will not be charged a VAT, for example when you apply from abroad.
