Our VAT Service

If you’re just starting out, we can help you decide whether you need to be VAT registered from the outset or not. However either way we will continue to monitor your situation, so that should it become obligatory for you to register for VAT, we can deal with all of the paperwork for you.

In contrast, we will also monitor your position for when we think you are able to and would benefit from deregistering from VAT. 

As part of our VAT return preparation service we will remind you of any upcoming deadlines helping you to avoid late VAT returns as well as assuming responsibility for competing the registration documents to reduce the possibility of errors all of which can lead to penalties and interest being charged. 


VAT Schemes

Whether you’re a new or existing business or sole trader, we will look at the VAT schemes you are eligible for and establish whether you would be better off adopting one or a mixture of them. Some VAT schemes can lead to tax savings and a reduction in bookkeeping responsibilities.

A VAT return is a form you file with HMRC, usually four times a year (quarterly) to show how much VAT you are due to pay them. 

The VAT return shows the calculation of the amounts of VAT due on sales minus the amount of VAT reclaimable on purchases. The result is the amount either claimable or payable to HMRC. 

If you are not registered for VAT, you do not need to file a VAT return, however if your  last 12 months turnover is expected to reach £85k or will exceed this in the coming 30 days you must register for VAT. 

If you are unsure and would like some advice please call us on 01228 264652. 

If your turnover for the past 12 consecutive months reaches £85k or you expect to exceed this amount in the next 30 days you must register for VAT. 

If your sales are usually below this level and you temporarily exceeded the VAT registration threshold you can apply for an exemption. 

If you are unsure and would like some advice please call us on 01228 264652.
