VAT registration service

We offer VAT registration service to UK limited companies. We will complete your VAT registration process with HMRC on your behalf and obtain your VAT registration certificate, usually within 14 days of application.

What is VAT?

Value Added Tax (VAT) is added to the sale of goods and services.

Is it mandatory to register my company for VAT?

It is not mandatory to register for VAT if your turnover is less than £85,000 in the previous 12 months and not expected to reach this amount in the future. However, if your turnover for 12 months exceeds £85,000 then it becomes mandatory to register for VAT.

Can a company register for VAT voluntarily?

Yes, there is no lower turnover limit for VAT registration.

Are there any advantages of VAT registration?

  • VAT registered company increases trust among suppliers/customers and enhance its 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 also charge VAT on products or services

What is the VAT flat rate scheme?

The VAT flat rate scheme allows a company to keep a % 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 their turnover is predicted to be less than £150,000 in first 12 months and does not have to leave scheme until turnover (including VAT) reaches £230,000.

Note: 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. Advice should be sought as to whether the scheme would be beneficial for your company.

How do I register for VAT?

You can use our VAT registration service or apply yourself directly with HMRC.

When are VAT returns due

VAT returns are usually due quarterly, but can be annual if desired. VAT is still payable quarterly.
