Lack of awareness of VAT rules

According to research 36% of the UK's smallest businesses are unaware of the rules governing VAT thresholds.

A third of the UK's smallest businesses are unaware of the rules governing VAT thresholds, recent research has revealed.

This lack of understanding could mean that approximately 780,000 businesses are at risk of being fined by HMRC.

Meanwhile, according to the research, 9% of small businesses intentionally limit their trading in order to avoid reaching the VAT threshold.

Under the current rules, where a taxable person (for example an individual, company or partnership) has VAT taxable turnover of more than the current registration threshold of £82,000 in a rolling 12 month period or where turnover is expected to exceed the registration threshold in the next 30 day period then they must register for VAT.

It is important to monitor turnover, as there is a penalty for late registration in addition to the tax payable.
