Establish an LLP & get the VAT registration number, open an LLP with VAT number

LLP formation with VAT registration: the advantages of this type of business entity is the opportunity it offers to get the best international tax rates, the opportunities group VAT offers and also the ability for members to play around with their individual profits and losses. All members will be taxed as one person and one VAT group. In addition, all members will have limited liability. Members can be individuals, partnerships, companies or trustees and they can be resident anywhere in the world. What they will need, however, is a UK registered office and to file their LLP annual accounts to the Registrar of Companies. Their tax return must be filed with the Inland Revenue. There must be at least one designated member who is responsible for signing accounts.

An LLP can register as a VAT group if each body has a registered UK office and the group is under a common control ie one of the group is a parent company and the rest are subsidiaries. Again, one member will be designated as responsible for completing the VAT return, making VAT payments or handling refunds on behalf of everyone else. It is worth noting that all members are liable for VAT debts. The advantages of group VAT is that VAT on services or goods supplied between members of the group does not need to be accounted for. Also only one VAT form is required for the whole group.

We will assist you with the filling in of the application form to establish an LLP with VAT registration, and we'll advise on any tax obligation issues. It may be the case that your particular limited liability partnership requires extra ownership documents corporate paperwork. We can help you prepare that too. No matter how complex your individual situation, one of our professional staff-members will be able to guide you through the process.

We can even provide a registered UK office, should you need one and our post incorporation advice is invaluable for any LLP. Let us give you the benefit of our years of experience and save you the time and money it would cost you registering yourselves. We'll ensure not only that no common mistakes are made when the paperwork is completed, but also that there are no hidden liabilities, that you should be made aware of.

Form an LLP With VAT Number

LLP establishment & VAT registration: registering a new limited liability partnership involves lodging documents with Companies House. This LLP registration process can be completed quickly and legally by allowing a formation agent to establish your LLP in a matter of hours. However, new incorporated LLPs must also register for VAT, & get the VAT registered number if their revenues exceed the threshold as laid out by HMRC. There is more than one way to arrange your LLP's VAT registration, including nominating designated members to take responsibility. However, choosing which method of VAT management is best for your new LLP is a complex decision, but relying on the expertise and experience of an LLP formation agent can help you to make the right decision.

Forming a UK limited liability partnership and VAT registration requirements

Forming a UK Limited Liability Partnership and VAT Registration

Since a limited liability partnership is a body corporate, the limited liability partnership itself is the legal entity for the VAT purposes. It can therefore be registered for VAT and, most importantly, in the typical limited liability partnership scenario, it can be VAT registered as a group with the general partner, provided that the control test is met, that is, either the limited liability partnership will have to have the general partner as its subsidiary, or the general partner would have to be a controlling partner in the limited liability partnership (it seems that the former scenario is much neater).

There are both advantages and disadvantages to adopting a limited liability partnership structure, and anyone considering whether to go down this route would need to analyse all the relevant factors by reference to their own individual circumstances. The decision will be a finely balanced one and will depend on a range of factors, including the extent to which the executives involved in management are to share in incentive arrangements.

In many cases it will be advantageous to use a limited liability partnership as the management vehicle, because there will only be a risk that the restricted securities regime will apply if the structure falls into one of the specific traps, and it will generally be harder to avoid these traps using a management partnership structure. For more information on how we can help you with your VAT registration book an appointment or contact us by phone or e-mail today.

People will usually register LLPs (limited liability partnerships) to create a vehicle that takes advantage of a group of more than one person’s skills. An LLP is a simple formation to incorporate and offers many benefits over standard partnerships.

The members of the LLP must inform the government tax authority - Revenue and Customs – within three months of becoming self-employed or risk severe penalties in failing to do so. When you become self-employed, you are eligible to pay class 2 National Insurance at a fixed amount, usually weekly. Members of an LLP pay tax depending on their income from the business activity, but do not pay corporation tax.

At the end of each tax year, the members of an LLP will need to file individual self-assessment tax returns (a typical tax year runs from 6th April to 5th April the following year). Revenue and Customs usually send self-assessment forms to members automatically, but in the event that you do not receive them, you will still be responsible for any payments due. An LLP has to file all trading account details with Companies House, the same way a LTD company would.

You must register an LLP through Companies House. To fulfil the minimum statutory requirements, the LLP must have a minimum of two members (which can be physical people, corporate bodies, or a mixture of both). LLPs do not have share capital, nor do they have a memorandum and articles to bind their company. Instead, members will usually draw up an LLP partnership agreement (which they will sign) and conduct their business accordingly. In this instance, it is beneficial to seek advice from a solicitor or similar qualified professional.

It is important to know that an LLP must also keep records of and file accounts, which will be in the public domain. When handling the accounts of your LLP, it is always advisable to seek help from a professional as they can instruct you in areas such as VAT thresholds.

VAT registration for an LLP: the VAT is an extremely important factor to all limited liability partnerships. It effects: -

  • Your clients, as you will have to charge VAT on top of the price of goods and services (this is known as output tax)
  • Your input tax – which is the VAT you deduct from what you pay your suppliers

VAT has many different rates that you will need to pay depending on what it is you are supplying or buying. There are also many exemptions and strict rules you will have to abide by when importing or exporting within the European Union. It is not always possible to reclaim VAT on business expenses as input tax, so HM Revenue and Customs have schemes such as: -

  • Cash basis scheme
  • Flat rate scheme
  • Annual scheme

With a standard scheme, all raised and received invoices will show the VAT at the tax point date. A cash accounting scheme enables you to identify the VAT on the cash received and paid out. In a flat rate scheme, the business will not have to record VAT on every individual sale or purchase but instead allows payable VAT to be accounted as a percentage of the VAT turnover. In all instances, the business will have to supply its customers with VAT invoices. It is detrimental to remember that there are various conditions which you will need to fulfil when applying the above-mentioned schemes, so it is therefore best to seek the advice from Coddan’s team of qualified professionals before doing so.

You will need to send VAT returns to HM Revenue and Customs on time without exception. These can be monthly, quarterly, or in some cases, annually - though the annual scheme does not mean that you will only have to make a one-off payment once a year.

When incorporating an LLP, you can employ people to work for you but you must inform Revenue and Customs. There are many laws regarding the practice between employer and employee and one must know them intricately before employing staff. The basic rules of employment are rather simple; you must have a contract of employment, and the necessary health and safety measures must be taken to ensure that the place of work is not a health and safety risk. Employees must receive adequate training to ensure that they are safe in the workplace and may require an induction.

The income generated from an LLPs trading activity is divided between members in accordance with the membership agreement. Members are responsible for paying their individual income tax and in some instances, may be required to pay both class 2 and class 4 National Insurance.

When an LLP has employees, they must register with PAYE (pay as you earn); from there, they deduct income tax and National Insurance from the employee’s earnings and pay it to HM Revenue and Customs.

You can calculate taxable profits through subtracting business expenses against the income generated through sales. Professional assistance is always advisable in this instance as the calculation process is unique to the LLP.

Once you have incorporated the LLP you must then contact HMRC and inform them that the business is established. From there, HMRC will send a Partnership Tax Return (which includes a partnership statement, which demonstrates the profits and losses of the company), which you must fill to show the income and expenses of that particular year.

An LLP should have at least one nominated member whose responsibility it will be to fill in the Partnership Tax Return and submit it to HMRC.

That particular member would be responsible for ensuring that all other members of the partnership receive copies of the statement, as this will help them to complete their own tax returns for that year. All the members of the LLP are jointly responsible for late penalties.
