Value Added Tax (VAT)

Home Taxation Services Value Added Tax (VAT)

Knowing when to register for VAT and on what accounting basis can be daunting. With the introduction of Making Tax Digital for VAT there is even more to consider. Samuels can advise and guide you through this process, making sure you comply. 


Your VAT preparation and submission

Value Added Tax (VAT) is complex and can be onerous. It is a tax on transactions, and it impacts businesses daily, causing many to inadvertently over or under pay VAT.  

It is the responsibility of the taxpayer to register for VAT and ensure they are accounting for the VAT at the right time. Compliance with the ever-changing VAT regulations is vital for all businesses. The legislation makes little allowance for incorrect submissions of VAT returns and failure to do so can result in interest and penalties.

Being registered for VAT and correctly submitting VAT returns on a timely basis is required by law and is an administrative burden. We can help reduce the hassle, complications and risk associated with your VAT return process. We can advise you when to register for VAT and can determine if voluntary registration will save you money or provide other benefits to enhance the long-term growth of your business.

HMRC VAT inspections and audits are often conducted to assess the quality of the systems and record keeping you have in place, as well as confirming the correct VAT has been paid or reclaimed. We have extensive experience in negotiating with HMRC and have successfully guided numerous clients through such enquires/investigations. We also offer tax insurance which can safeguard you from the cost of our professional representation fees, in the event of a HMRC visit. 

Accounting for VAT, including the recording of sales, purchases and cash movements, is fast becoming a digital process.  The Making Tax Digital (MTD) legislation will make digital record keeping and submissions compulsory for all businesses in the coming years. We can help you automate and establish digital systems to comply with the requirements, whilst also saving you time and costs in the long-run. This will also prepare you for any HMRC compliance visits.
