Simple and hassle free VAT reporting
The rules for VAT are constantly changing and it can be difficult for businesses without a dedicated VAT resource to keep a track of evolving HMRC interpretation, and new legislation.
If errors are made on your VAT returns you could be in for a surprise further down the line. However, there are opportunities open to companies that are able to keep on top of these changes: you may be paying too much VAT or not reclaiming enough, and therefore may be due a hefty repayment.
When should i register for vat
You must register for VAT if your VAT taxable turnover goes over £85,000 (the ‘threshold’), or you know that it will. Your VAT taxable turnover is the total of everything sold that is not VAT exempt. You can also register voluntarily.
You must register for VAT if:
- you expect your VAT taxable turnover to be more than £85,000 in the next 30-day period
- your business had a VAT taxable turnover of more than £85,000 over the last 12 months
You might also need to register in some other cases, depending on the kinds of goods or services you sell and where you sell them.

Fiscal representation after Brexit
Currently, UK businesses trading in other EU countries are not required to appoint a fiscal representative to assist with managing their VAT registrations. However, when the UK leaves the EU on 31 December 2020, this will no longer be the case and many UK businesses will have an obligation to appoint a fiscal representative to carry on trading in lots of EU countries.
