HOW VAT WORKS IN THE UK

There are three VAT rates in the UK. Only businesses registered for VAT are charging VAT on their invoices which are then called VAT invoices. Learn more below.

VAT AND VAT REGISTRATION

When starting a new business, you will not be registered for VAT by default. You will need to get a VAT Number and add it to every invoice.  If you register for VAT , you will start generating and sending VAT invoices. The difference is that a VAT invoice will include VAT details. 

Registration is mandatory for businesses if their VAT taxable turnover is more than £85,000. You can also register voluntarily if your turnover is less than £85,000. You will have certain responsibilities if you register for VAT.

After you register, you will get a VAT registration certificate. This confirms:

  • Your VAT number

  • When to submit your first VAT Return and payment

  • Your ‘effective date of registration’ - this depends on the date you went over the threshold, or is the date you asked to register if it was voluntary

VAT RETURNS

As a VAT registered business, you will be submitting a VAT return HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) every 3 months. This period of time is known as your ‘accounting period.’

There also is a final VAT Return submitted by businesses that are having their VAT registration cancelled.

You can get the inputs for the VAT Return from your Billdu dashboard. The periodical VAT return will contain information such as.

  • Total sales and purchases

  • The amount of VAT you owe

  • The amount of VAT you can reclaim

  • What your VAT refund from HMRC is
