VAT registration service

Once you register a company , you can complete your VAT registration online via our simple process. We offer a comprehensive VAT registration service that allows you to register your UK limited company for VAT with ease. We will take care of the paperwork and forms and complete the entire VAT registration process on your behalf before obtaining your VAT registration certificate, usually within 14 days of application.

Once your VAT registration process is complete, you will receive:

  • A VAT registration number for your business
  • Details of when to submit your first VAT return and payment
  • Your company’s "effective date of VAT registration". This is the date you reached the VAT threshold of £85,000 turnover or more or the date you voluntarily applied.

You can then start charging for VAT along with your products or services.

What’s included in our VAT registration service?

Once you make your payment for our VAT registration online service, our team will contact you and:

  • Get all the required information to file your company for VAT registration online
  • Fill the required forms and paperwork
  • Submit your VAT registration to HMRC on your behalf
  • Ensure all the required procedures are followed to get your unique VAT registration number.

What are the advantages of voluntary VAT registration?

  • VAT registered companies benefit from increased trust among suppliers and customers and enhance their credibility
  • VAT registration gives an impression of a well-established company. This is particularly useful for new businesses
  • VAT registered companies can reclaim VAT on purchases
  • VAT registered companies can charge VAT on products or services

What is VAT?

Value Added Tax (VAT) is a form of tax added to the sale of goods and services. VAT is a tax a customer pays when they buy goods and services in the European Union, including in the UK.

Is it mandatory to register my company for VAT?

Whether you have a virtual office or a brick-and-mortar company, registering for VAT registration is not mandatory unless your turnover has exceeded £85,000 in the previous 12 months or is expected to reach this amount in the future.

Can a company register for VAT voluntarily?

Yes, there is no lower turnover limit for VAT registration. Some businesses choose to register for VAT for its various advantages, including improved credibility.

What is the VAT flat-rate scheme?

The VAT flat-rate scheme allows a company to keep a percentage of the VAT charged but not reclaim any VAT on purchases. It is designed to simplify VAT returns for smaller businesses. A company can apply to join the flat-rate scheme if its turnover is predicted to be less than £150,000 in the first 12 months, and the business does not have to leave the scheme until its turnover (including VAT) reaches £230,000.

New rules introduced in April 2017 mean that a new flat rate of 16.5% applies to common service companies, which can effectively nullify the financial gain. You should seek advice as to whether the scheme would be beneficial for your company.

How do I register for VAT?

You can use our VAT registration online service or apply yourself directly with HMRC. With Mint Formations, you can sit back as we complete the entire process for you, including liaising with HMRC to register your business for VAT.

When are VAT returns due?

VAT returns are usually due every quarter but can be made annually if desired. VAT is still payable quarterly.
