There are potential benefits in being VAT registered (even if you haven’t reached the required turnover for the last 12 months of over £81,000). As you reach this figure you are typically obliged to register for VAT.
Some of the VAT related questions we are asked are:
1. How do I can to register for VAT?
2. Can I register for VAT even before I turnover £81,000? Why would I do this?
3. What are the implications for my business when I do register for VAT?
4. If I am registered for VAT what can I claim for? Is it Flat rate or Cash accounting or Standard rate or Exempt or Zero rated? Do I need to operate a margin scheme?
The answer to the above questions depends on the business and the kinds of expenses you are claiming.
The Flat rate VAT scheme may suit businesses with limited expenses. Companies receiving payment from customers may wish to register for cash VAT accounting. VAT is complex and ever-changing so do not underestimate its importance. With new penalty legislation, getting it wrong can be costly. Get it right from the start and avoid the worry associated with this. We can answer any questions you have.
