Navigate VAT with Confidence
What is VAT?
Value-added tax (VAT) is a tax added to most products and services sold by VAT-registered businesses. VAT must be paid by a limited company when their business reaches the threshold of £85,000 in turnover.
Many businesses find VAT tricky to navigate and feel the tremendous administrative burden of working through the complex responsibilities and regulations as a VAT-registered business. Mistakes can also be costly – there is a rigid system of penalties and interest charges for errors in calculating VAT, and late submissions of returns.
This is why it is important to work with an accountant who fully understands VAT and can make the process of knowing what you owe, and when you owe it, totally stress-free.
