Frequently asked questions

Businesses are usually required to submit a VAT return to HMRC every three months (quarterly). This shows how much VAT is due. If you’re not registered for VAT, you won’t file VAT returns. The return shows the calculation of the amount of VAT due on sales minus the amount of VAT reclaimable on purchases. The result is the amount payable to HMRC.
All businesses with a taxable turnover of more than £85,000 are required to register for VAT. If your turnover is less, you can register voluntarily. This comes with several benefits. Firstly, you could save money. Secondly, the credibility of your business can be improved. Did you know that larger clients and customers often only deal with VAT-registered businesses?
The VAT return calculates the amount of VAT due on sales (output VAT), minus the amount of VAT you can reclaim on purchases (input VAT). The resulting figure is the amount you pay. If the amount you reclaim is higher than the amount due, then you’ll get a VAT refund.
The deadline for submitting the return and paying HMRC are usually the same – one calendar month and seven days after the end of an accounting period.
