Understanding VAT and VAT Returns


To fully grasp the importance of our services, it’s essential to understand what VAT is and how VAT returns work.


What is VAT?


Value Added Tax (VAT) is a consumption tax levied on the sale of goods and services. In the UK, businesses add VAT to the price of most products and services they supply. VAT is collected by businesses on behalf of HMRC and paid to the government. The standard VAT rate in the UK is currently 20%, but there are reduced rates of 5% and 0% for certain goods and services.


Who Needs to Register for VAT?


Businesses must register for VAT if their taxable turnover exceeds the VAT registration threshold, which is currently £90,000. Businesses with turnover below this threshold can voluntarily register for VAT, which can have benefits such as the ability to reclaim VAT on purchases.


Types of VAT Schemes


There are several VAT schemes available to businesses, each with its own rules and benefits:


Standard VAT Accounting: This is the default scheme where VAT is calculated on each transaction.

Flat Rate Scheme: Designed for small businesses, this scheme simplifies VAT by applying a flat rate percentage to your turnover.

Cash Accounting Scheme: Under this scheme, you only pay VAT when you receive payments from customers and reclaim VAT when you pay your suppliers.

Annual Accounting Scheme: This scheme allows you to make advance payments towards your VAT bill throughout the year and submit one VAT return annually.

Choosing the right scheme depends on your business's specific circumstances and needs. Our experts can help you determine the most beneficial scheme for your business.


VAT Return Components


A VAT return is a form you submit to HMRC, usually every quarter, summarising your sales and purchases for that period. It includes the following components:


Output Tax: VAT you’ve charged on your sales.

Input Tax: VAT you’ve paid on your purchases.

Net VAT: The difference between the output tax and input tax. If your output tax is higher than your input tax
