V.A.T. Value Added Tax

If your business turns over more than £85,000 per year, you are legally required to register for UK VAT. VAT is perhaps the most scrutinised of all U.K taxes, so understanding it and dealing with it accurately is vital.

It may be an advantage to your business to register for VAT, even if you are not legally required to, for cash flow reasons.

Over the past few years, VAT in the UK has undergone huge upheaval with the arrival of making tax digital making the process more complicated and expensive for businesses to handle.

Domestic Reverse Charge (DRC)

As of March 1st 2021, the Domestic Reverse Charge (DRC) will come into play in the construction industry in the UK. This is a huge change to the way VAT is collected for businesses who fall inside the scope of CIS. To ensure that you are up to date with new legislation and fully understand the new process, contact Apex Accountants today.

Post–Brexit and EU VAT

Brexit has altered the way VAT works when buying and selling to and from the EU. If you complete a European VAT return to reclaim expenses incurred from European businesses, the process has now changed. C79 documents are no longer issued by HMRC, meaning that your business must use import documentation and postponed VAT accounting in order to fulfill your VAT responsibilities.

The VAT landscape is rapidly changing and responsibilities, thresholds and allowances are often shifting. To ensure that you are up to date with legislation and your VAT affairs, outsource to Apex Accountants and let our professionals straighten out your tax affairs.
