If your business is VAT registered, we offer tax return services to individuals who are obligated to complete a tax return every year. We can register for VAT on your behalf if required. VAT and tax returns ensure a company’s compliance with HM Revenue and Customs. If you are the owner of your own business, you must submit a tax return. The purpose of this documentation is to declare your income to HMRC so that they may calculate how much tax is due to be paid.
Financial penalties, which accrue interest, are distributed to those who fail to submit a VAT or tax return on time, which is why you should prioritise having your returns submitted before the deadline. On the plus side, completing your VAT and tax returns with time to spare informs you how much you will be asked to pay and also gives you the time to accrue the funds. We will keep you on the straight and narrow, ensuring you don’t get any nasty surprises.
VAT is applied to the cost of goods and services to be paid by the customer in line with the requirements of European Law and the HMRC. VAT is notoriously complicated and it can be difficult to determine whether you are paying the correct amount. Standard VAT is 20%; however a lower 5% rate applies in some cases and 0% in others.
There are various VAT schemes to choose from depending on your trading circumstances. Speaking to one of our accountants here at P S Bookkeeping and Accountancy will give you a clearer idea of which tax schemes you are eligible for, as registering incorrectly can cause avoidable VAT increases.
