VAT support

VAT is the most complex tax we deal with and the most despised by our clients.

A forced VAT registration can be the difference between success and failure for a business. There is often a quite legitimate, and completely legal way to avoid a VAT registration and we have many success stories involving VAT.

The new reverse charge VAT rules – is your business up to speed?

As of 1 March 2021, more than 150,000 businesses connected to the construction industry need to make a fundamental change to the way they manage their VAT processes.

The reverse charge applies to business-to-business supplies where both businesses are registered for VAT, there is an onward supply of construction and the parties are subject to the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS).

We can provide you with the latest advice on reverse charge VAT and ensure that your accounting systems and software can deal with the reverse charge.

Making Tax Digital for VAT

VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover above the VAT threshold (£85,000) are now required to follow HMRC’s Making Tax Digital rules by keeping digital records and using software to submit their VAT returns.

If you are below the VAT threshold, currently you can voluntarily join the Making Tax Digital service now.

However, from April 2022, VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover below £85,000 will be required to follow Making Tax Digital rules for their first return starting on or after April 2022.
