LLP and VAT registration issues: one of the major advantages of opening an LLP is the benefit that being in a VAT group brings. Members of the same VAT group are not liable for VAT on supplies that are passed between the group members. This is obviously a highly desirable situation, given the savings that can be made.
There are a few conditions that must be met before an LLP can also be a VAT group and they are: -
We are Coddan and we are a leading incorporation firm. We are also specialists in the intricacies of English business law, given our many years in the industry. As we understand just how complicated the whole process of forming a limited liability partnership can be, we provide a comprehensive service that takes care of all the necessary paperwork for you, saving you time and money. At the same time as registering your limited liability partnership, we will apply for group VAT and a UK bank account for you.
Let us explain further. To apply for group VAT, you must first of all have a bank account. However, we have a devised a system whereby you can apply for both, through us, at the same time. The paperwork needed for this is included on our LLP registration form. Our support does not stop there. Should you need a UK registered office address, or another member company with which to complete your firm registration, we can provide them for you. This will allow your business to be up and running as quickly and efficiently as possible.
As a respected partner of Companies House, we take our responsibilities seriously and our aim is to provide a service to our customers that are in accordance with UK law. For this reason we must point out that if we register your LLP for you and provide you with a registered office address for a registered LLP, you are responsible for demonstrating to HMRC that effective management will be carried out from the UK. You must file your accounts annually with them and you must be able to prove that you have customers in the UK. Should you wish to use us as a member company for your LLP, we can only act as the VAT agent and not the VAT representative. We will not be jointly liable for any outstanding VAT fees that you may incur.
