What is VAT? When does your business need to register for VAT?
Value-added Added Tax (VAT) is a tax you must pay when buying goods or services. If your business has a turnover above £85,000, you must register your products/services and collect VAT at source before lodging quarterly returns with HMRC every three months – or risk penalties!
In the UK, VAT is generally 20% on goods and services and 5% on certain health, energy, heating, protective articles and services. Various goods and services related to health, construction, publishing, or children’s clothing are exempt from VAT.
Excluded transactions and services are numerous (for example, postage stamp issuance financial and property transactions). Instead, businesses charge VAT based on what they sell and the money they make.
The UK government gives your business a unique nine-digit registration number, usually starting with GB.
You will only get a VAT registration number if your business is VAT registered, and you can easily find this on your registration certificate. The certificate also outlines when your first VAT return is due and when your business has passed the registration threshold.
How do we determine the due date for VAT payment?
You can log into the government website to learn about VAT returns and payment deadlines. You can then access your VAT online account.
Your VAT online account will let you know when your VAT return is due and when you must clear the money to your HMRC account. The filing date and payment date are usually the same and are approximately one calendar month and seven days after the end of your accounting period. For example, if your VAT accounting period ends on May 31, then July 7 will be your submission and payment deadline.

How can we help you with your VAT return?
Monthly VAT return
VAT returns can be challenging for VAT-registered businesses, and FinanceMonkey accountants can help prepare, review, and file complex or simple VAT returns. Returns can be filed through a variety of schemes and at different frequencies.
Our services will remove the hassle, complexity, and risk from your VAT filing process.
All VAT-registered companies are required to file VAT returns regularly. The VAT return calculates the amount of VAT payable or reimbursable to HMRC. VAT returns are filed every three months, known as the ‘accounting period.’ All taxable transactions are reported during this period, and any VAT liabilities or refunds are calculated.

What is the best VAT Scheme for your business?
Flat Rate Chart
The Flat Rate VAT system was created to ensure that businesses pay the same amount of VAT without filling out extensive paperwork like other VAT systems.
The amount you pay HMRC depends on your business rating and the amount you charge your customers. You can keep the difference between the fees charged to HMRC and those paid, except for certain capital assets of £2,000 or more.
Standard VAT accounting regime
The standard approach to VAT accounting means that financial transactions are recorded as they occur, regardless of when payments are made. This can create cash flow issues for your business as you must pay HMRC VAT on the services or products you sell before you receive payment. However, you can claim VAT on the invoices you receive, which can positively impact your cash flow if you don’t pay for your purchases.
VAT paid on a cash basis
The difference between the sales and purchase invoices is usually the VAT you pay to HMRC (HM Revenue and Customs). You must report these figures and pay HMRC even if the bill has not been paid. When your customers pay you, you pay sales VAT; after paying your suppliers under a cash accounting system, you recover the VAT on purchases. To join the scheme, your taxable VAT return must amount to £1.35 million or less.
