We Are Selling Ready Made Companies With VAT Number

Ready Made Companies With VAT Number

Buying a ready made company in the UK means you can get down to business without further delay. There is a lot of paperwork involved in incorporating a new limited company, something that can seem pretty onerous and even confusing, which is why purchasing an off-the-shelf company has many advantages. One area that many businesses struggle with in the UK is VAT, a legal requirement for companies with a turnover in excess of £82,000 over a 12 month period.

At Coddan, we are selling ready made companies with VAT number included, which means that is one less task for you to worry about. Ensuring that you are properly registered for VAT with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) in the UK is crucial and is something that you can't afford to get wrong. We have a range of ready made companies of different ages that come complete with all the necessary documentation, including articles of association, certificate of incorporation, and VAT registration number. Off the shelf companies with VAT numbers are also registered with a nominee director, nominee shareholder, and a registered office address, and we guarantee that the company has been dormant from the date of its incorporation.

Purchasing one of these ready made companies can be done online, and the whole process completed in a matter of hours. We can register details of your new directors and registered office free of charge, or provide you with our nominee secretary and registered address for your company, if you prefer, for an additional yearly fee. We can even arrange your business bank accounts on your behalf. Buying a shelf company, complete with VAT number means all you have to do is do what you know best – provide the goods and services that will generate a healthy return on your investment.

Going forward, it is important to note that VAT payments to HMRC are made quarterly and should be made in a timely manner. Any late payment, or failure to pay, can result in hefty fines and serious consequences. At Coddan, we offer the complete VAT administration service, and our experienced team will ensure accurate records are kept, calculate your company liability, and see that VAT payments are made on time.

Advantages of a Readymade Company With a VAT Number

Shelf Company With a VAT Number

Advantages of a readymade company with a VAT number: one of the main advantages of buying an off-the-shelf UK company is that you are able to start trading immediately and focus solely on making a return on your investment. The process of incorporating a new limited company involves a lot of paperwork and can seem pretty daunting. There are a lot of boxes that need ticking to ensure your company is properly set up and, depending on turnover projections, one of the key requirements in the UK is that your business is registered for VAT.

At Coddan, we sell readymade companies and although these cannot be preregistered for VAT, we are able to do this for a small additional fee at the time of purchase. What this means, of course, is that your readymade company is optimised to get down to business. You do have the option of buying a readymade company and then registering for VAT yourself, but unless you fully understand the legal requirements – and the potential sanctions for failing to meet these – it makes a lot of sense to get our experienced team at Coddan to take care of it for you. We charge a small fee for doing this, and in return, you have the complete peace of mind that your business is fully compliant with company law in the UK.

If your business is engaged in supplying services or goods that are subject to VAT, and your turnover is more than £82,000 in a 12 month period, your company needs to be registered with HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC) for VAT payments. Your company will then have to make quarterly payments to HMRC and any failure to do so, or late payments, can lead to heavy fines.

VAT registration, payments and ongoing administration is one area that many businesses struggle to stay on top of in the UK. At Coddan, we can ensure you start off on the right foot by registering your newly acquired company, along with all the other formal documentation. Going forward, we also offer a complete VAT administration service that includes keeping up-to-date records, calculating your liability and submitting your VAT returns on time.

The Main Purpose of Buying a Shelf Company With a VAT Number

Buying a Shelf Company With a VAT Number

The main purpose of buying a shelf company with a VAT number: if you want your own company and to start trading as soon as possible, a shelf company with a VAT number is the ideal solution. The company will already be formed and registered for VAT, meaning you can start your business immediately.

Companies that want to trade in the UK must register for value added tax with HM Revenue & Customs, and it's normally done after the process of registering a new enterprise with Companies House as you will need those details to make your application.

That all takes time, because after forming the company and then applying for VAT registration HMRC can take around a month to deal with the application, and in some cases it can take up to six months if its officers need to carry out various verification checks. Those are delays that many people in the fast-paced business world just cannot afford.

Here at Coddan we have a range of shelf companies available, and you can view them here on our website. You can find out all the details about these firms, including when and where they were incorporated, their structure and personnel and if they're already registered for VAT or not. As companies are legally liable for VAT from the time they register for it, it's important to ensure there are no past difficulties, including unpaid VAT, when buying a shelf company with a VAT number, and we guarantee all of ours are up to date.

Purchasing a shelf company is straightforward and easy with Coddan, as you can just use our online order form, which is approved by Companies House, and when we receive your details we'll do the rest. You can have your new enterprise in as little as a day, but in some cases it may take a day or two longer, and when the process is completed you'll get all the statutory documentation for your file, including the certificate of incorporation, memorandum and articles of association and your VAT registration certificate bearing your VAT number.

The Procedure to Buy a Readymade Company With a VAT Number

Procedure to Buy a Ready Made Company With a VAT Number

The procedure to buy a ready made company with a VAT number: if you want to get started with business, a readymade company can give you immediate ownership without any hassle. The process of buying a readymade company, complete with a VAT number, is simple.

With many ready-made companies available, the first step is to browse the listings of existing companies. You can search by name or by the date they were incorporated. When you find the right company, you can reserve it for up to 48 hours before payment.

Choosing a shelf company allows you to have the benefits of an established company without the time investment. This means you will be able to bid for certain contracts that require a minimum number of years since incorporation.

A ready made company comes complete with all the required paperwork already finished. Whether you choose a limited company or a limited liability partnership with a VAT number, all of the filing has been taken care of for you. The incorporation process has already been completed, meaning you can begin trading immediately.

Every ready made company is sold complete with a certificate of incorporation, memorandum, and articles of association. You don't need to take the time to write any of these required documents. When you purchase a ready-made company, you can immediately change the company directors, replacing our nominee shareholder, director, and secretary with those of your own choice. You can even change the trading name of the business. This means that you aren't limited to the corporation name you choose. Simply trade under a different business name with your readymade company as the proprietor.

While VAT registration isn't required for every UK business, some companies do want to opt in before it becomes required. A ready-made company with a VAT number saves you the trouble of the registration. From the very start, you have everything you need to carry out your business.

A readymade company with a VAT number can make starting your business a streamlined process. With immediate transfer of the company and its shares, you can have an established business with no hassle. This leaves you to spend your time conducting business rather than filling out forms.

The Procedure For Transferring a VAT Number to a New Owner

Shelf Company With VAT Number For Sale

The procedure for transferring a VAT number to a new owner: when you purchase a shelf company that has already has a VAT number, you'll need to transfer the VAT registration to your new business. It's also necessary in situations where a business is being taken over as a going concern, or if the status of an existing business is being changed – for instance, to a limited company from a sole trader. Here at Coddan we can use our expertise to help you do it, so you can use the same VAT number for transactions.

Value added tax is not a levy paid by businesses but by the end consumer; it's imposed on most, but not all, products and services, and companies act as a sort of collection agent for the government. It's vital, therefore, that all matters concerned with VAT are properly handled so there are no difficulties with the authorities. People intending on transferring a VAT number – or agents acting on their behalf, such as Coddan – should carry out a thorough check of the history to make sure there are no underpayments or arrears.

The application for transferring VAT registration is done at HM Revenue & Customs and it usually takes around three weeks before it's complete. Any details associated with the existing owner will need to be addressed, such as direct debits linked to their VAT account, which will need to be cancelled, and an accountant dealing with the VAT account should no longer be authorised to access it.

Additionally, the existing owner will need to have their VAT records available as they will be given to the new owner. HMRC requires companies to keep a complete record of all their VAT transactions, which must be made available for inspection at any time; failure to do so can result in fines and other penalties that could be damaging to operations. These, along with other official documentation, will be kept at the official registered address, unless another is supplied for inspection purposes.

If you wish to transfer a VAT number to a new owner, we will be happy to assist. Get in touch with us today and you can get expert advice from our seasoned business consultants.

Registered UK Address For a Readymade Company With a VAT Number

Off The Shelf Company With VAT Number For Sale

Registered UK address for a readymade company with a VAT number: when you purchase a readymade company with a VAT number, you must have your own business address in the UK. This cannot be a third party office address.

A readymade company with a VAT number can be an easy way to get your business established quickly and efficiently. You get the benefits of an established incorporated business without any of the hassle. Simply choose the company you want, purchase it, and all of the company assets and shares will be transferred to you.

Part of the transfer includes transferring directorship from the nominated shareholders, directors, and secretaries to your own officers. The company's registered address is also changed at this time. This is all taken care of as part of your company purchase.

The new address will appear on many of your company's documents. This includes the certificate of incorporation, memorandum and articles of association. Your VAT registration will also be transferred to your new address. This means that your business will be able to begin trading immediately, using your place of business as your registered address.

What is a registered address? Your readymade company will need a physical address for registration. This can be a PO Box, as long as it is followed by a physical address. It can also be a home address, provided it meets the requirements. This address will be used for your business correspondence from Companies House and HMRC. It will also be made public on the companies register, allowing other businesses and members of the public to find your company.

Having the correct address for your purchased company is essential for many reasons: your bank will require the address when you set up any business banking, and it will be used for correspondence from HMRC regarding your taxes. You are not limited to trading at that address, however. A registered address is a permanent address for your company, although you can have other trading addresses, too. When setting up your registered address, it is important to ensure that you'll have long-term access to that address. As such, this should be your office or home address rather than a third party office address.

HMRC Has The Right to Cancel VAT Registration

HMRC Can Cancel VAT Registration

HMRC has the right to cancel VAT registration: not every UK business is required to be registered for Value Added Tax (VAT). If your company's turnover is under £82,000 per year, or you only trade in VAT exempt products, you do not need to register for VAT. If you are not registered for VAT, you cannot charge VAT.

If you expect to reach or pass the VAT threshold, you need to register for VAT. If you have already registered for VAT voluntarily, you will need to meet your VAT responsibilities. These include the correct record keeping, paying VAT due to HMRC, and charging the right amount of VAT.

Although you can voluntarily register for VAT, HMRC does retain the right to cancel your registration. This might be because they are not satisfied with the business your company is carrying out.

If your company is trading exclusively in VAT exempt products, such as insurance, postage stamps, and some food items, you must not include these purchases and sales in your VAT accounts. Instead, these must be recorded in your general accounting. If you are selling only exempt items, you can deregister for VAT. This will mean you no longer need to file VAT returns.

While many companies will voluntarily choose to deregister because of changes to their business, there are circumstances where HMRC will cancel the registration or require a cancellation. Any change to a business must be reported to the HMRC. This includes ownership, address, and type of business.

When these changes are correctly made, the VAT registration will be carried over with the new information. If you are purchasing an existing company with a VAT registration, properly filing this change of ownership is an essential part of the transfer. Ensuring that it is handled correctly can make a big difference in the future VAT registration of the company.

By handling the transfer correctly, Coddan can help you purchase an existing company with VAT registration. The transfer of the company and its VAT registration can be done quickly, easily, and correctly. This allows you to begin trading with VAT registration already in place with no need to wait for HMRC's approval.

We Do Not Provide a Nominee Director Service For Readymade Companies With VAT Numbers

Nominee Director and VAT Registered Company

We do not provide a nominee director service for ready made companies with VAT numbers: although we offer an extensive range of services and business options here at Coddan, one thing that unfortunately we do not provide is a nominee director service. For those who are unaware, a nominee director is usually used as a facade; as a kind of mascot for the company, acting as the company's director whilst the real directors are working behind the scenes with their identities protected.

One advantage of having a nominee director is that any negative publicity generated by the company is directed at the nominee, and not those who are truly in charge. For this reason, the nominee director seldom has an active role in the company, instead serving primarily to give their name, thus fulfilling the requirement for a company to have a director.

However, while not illegal, nominee directors could perhaps be seen as exercising some deception on behalf of the customers. This is due to the impression that the nominee director has some control over the company, when this is rarely the case. Therefore, if a company encounters some negative publicity and the nominee director subsequently resigns, customers may have the impression that the company's culture will change, when, in actual fact, the culture will stay exactly the same; the same people behind the scenes are still in charge, but are merely instructing another nominee director.

There's often a feeling of secrecy surrounding the appointment of a nominee director; a feeling that the people behind the scenes are protecting themselves from negative publicity. This feeling is reinforced by the fact that, often, the nominee director is secretly receiving instructions and has probably agreed to hand over all control of the company to the real directors.

It's for these reasons that, here at Coddan, we do not provide a nominee director service. However, we do provide a whole host of other services, ranging from readymade newly-registered businesses, to LLP registration, and everything in between.

Additional Services For a Readymade Company With a VAT Number

VAT Registered Company For Sale

Additional services for a readymade company with a VAT number: purchasing a ready made company with a VAT number takes all of the hassle out of starting a business. You don't need to wait for registration, or go through a lengthy process of drawing up documents for incorporation. If you want to have this same ease of operation continue as you begin trading, additional services such as tax and VAT agent services, bookkeeping, and accountancy services can keep your business running smoothly.

Bookkeeping and accountancy: every company must keep their accounts in order and file tax returns on an annual basis. If you have a small turnover, this might be something you can handle on your own. However, the bigger your business, the more complicated this becomes. HM Revenues and Customs has specific requirements for bookkeeping and accounting methods for UK businesses. This ensures that every company is correctly reporting their income and expenses, and paying the correct amount of tax.

Having accurate bookkeeping and accountancy can also help your company run more effectively. You can keep track of your profits and losses, and have a better understanding of your company's financial needs.

Tax and VAT agency: along with the day to day bookkeeping and accounting for your business, you will also need to file a tax return each year. This can be a complicated form, and mistakes can be costly. By hiring a tax agent, you are authorising somebody else to fill out your return on your behalf. This can be a tax expert who is able to correctly fill out your return, and even minimise the amount of tax your company needs to pay.

Similarly, a VAT agent files your VAT return on your behalf. This separate tax return requires a separate accounting of purchases and sales of goods that are not VAT exempt. Knowing the correct VAT rates is an essential part of this task. By using the services of Coddan, you can trust one agent to handle all of your extra needs. From the purchase of your company onward, you can be sure that everything is being filed correctly and that all of your records are being kept up to date.

HMRC and VAT Inspections of Companies With VAT Numbers

HMRC and VAT Inspections

Most businesses in the United Kingdom must register for value added tax, or VAT, once their turnover reaches a certain threshold. At the time of writing, this figure is at ?67,000 per year, although it regularly changes and must be checked often in order to find out whether or not your business meets the turnover threshold.

So, assuming that your business is registered for VAT, and therefore has a VAT number, you'll need to be aware of a number of inspections and regulations required by the HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs), the department responsible for taxation in the UK.

One of the ways in which these regulations are enforced is through visits by tax inspectors. These are officers, employed by the government, who are responsible for ensuring that the VAT records of your business are up-to-date. In order to do this, they will check your VAT records, speak to the relevant person in charge of the business's VAT records, and generally keep an eye on the workings of the business to ensure that your business is compliant with VAT regulations and that the amount of VAT being paid to HMRC is the correct sum.

The length of these visits varies according to the size and complexity of the business. Whereas some may last only a matter of hours, others can last a number of days. The frequency of the visits also depends on the size and type of business, as well as your reliability in providing accurate records in the past. A company with a reputation for providing false information, or paying the wrong amount of VAT, will likely be subject to longer and more frequent visits than one that is always reliable and accurate.

One way to ensure that your business falls into the latter category is to ensure that the person responsible for paying the business’s VAT is up-to-date on all the relevant facts and figures, and is well-informed and ready to answer any questions posed by the VAT inspector. In addition, all relevant documents should be organised and easily accessible, in order to simplify the job for the inspector and speed up the visit.
