VAT registration for non-UK customers: should you expect your company to have a taxable turnover in excess of £85,000 per year, you will be required to register your company for UK VAT. £85,000 is currently the UK's threshold for VAT registration.
VAT stands for Value Added Tax, and is charged on the majority of business transactions that take place in the UK, whether those transactions are to other businesses, or to members of the public. There are three rates for VAT in the UK. The standard rate is 20%, the reduced rate (for specific types of product) is 5% and the third rate is 0% or zero rate.
Some products and services are exempt from VAT, and you may not be entirely clear on which category your company is in, which is why our experienced advisers will be able to assist you with decision-making in this area.
