Our Mission

Less Grey has formally existed since 2015. Before that, however, the partners in Less Grey had already accumulated many years of VAT experience. Either as founder or partner of a Less Grey predecessor, or as an independent VAT specialist. The background, however, is always the same: high quality VAT advice with a clear and no-nonsense approach.

It is our mission to protect and optimise your VAT rights. We act as a sparring partner and are able to ask critical questions that are not always obvious. This way, we ensure that you meet your obligations, but certainly do not pay more than necessary. We are also 100% transparent about our costs.

VAT is not just our job, it is our passion. We see the world through VAT spectacles: transactions and day-to-day agreements and processes all have a VAT aspect
