VAT Returns

You can pay your VAT to return to the HMRC on the government website, as well as over the phone and via internet banking. The deadline in which you should pay your VAT should be on your bill. However, you will usually have a month since the end of your accounting period to pay our VAT with HMRC. If you do not pay your VAT on time with the HMRC, you may be subject to a surcharge. Surcharges may change as time goes on without paying your VAT. For more information on surcharges, or if you have been charged by HMRC without your knowledge, ring the number above and you will be connected to a member of staff who can help you further.

VAT Registration

In order to pay your VAT online, you will need to register. You can also register a lawyer or representative who can deal with HMRC on your behalf. Once you have registered online with HMRC, you should receive your certificate within two weeks by post or email, depending on your chosen preference. When registering online, you will be asked to provide certain details about yourself and business life. You can read more about the questions you may be asked, as well as information on VAT registration over on the government site.

VAT Exemption Certificate

Some goods are exempt from VAT and tax. If you sell these goods, it can change the VAT you reclaim through HMRC. If all of the products you offer are exempt from VAT, your business will be as well. This means that you will not be able to register online with HMRC to claim VAT refunds. For more information on this matter, ring the number above and we will connect you to a member of staff at the HMRC VAT Contact Number who can help you further. Alternatively, you can visit the VAT exemption website
