What is VAT and how can we help?

VAT, or value-added tax, is an amount added to the cost of a product at each level of the supply chain. It is different from income tax as it is imposed based on the consumption rather than the amount of income. You must register for VAT if your business has annual taxable sales of more than £85,000 every year or you are set to go beyond the boundary in the next 30 days. In this circumstance, registration is compulsory.

However, there can also be benefits to registering your company for VAT before it meets this threshold. Once you are VAT registered you can claim input VAT on the products you purchase from VAT registered suppliers, so it can help your business to establish a stronger cash flow. With Accounting Solutions, our Nottingham Chartered Accountants can advise you on the best VAT structure for your business.
