Part of running a successful business involves understanding and complying with your tax requirements as and when they arise. Whether you are starting a new venture or are an established company, it is essential to know your position in relation to VAT. At Karl Jackson, we provide the professional advice you need to make an informed decision on the right time for your business to register for VAT and handle the paperwork on your behalf. Our qualified accountants can also offer expert advice on VAT tax schemes and prepare and file your VAT return directly with HM Revenue & Customs.

While there is no requirement to register for VAT until your income goes beyond the stated threshold, in some circumstances, it can be advantageous for a company to register for VAT from the outset. Where it is advisable to wait, we will monitor your situation and notify you at the point at which VAT registration is required. Our experienced tax accountants can facilitate the process by taking care of all the paperwork for you.

At the point of registration, it is important to know which VAT schemes your business is eligible for. Our tax accountants can advise you on the most suitable option, whether that is a specific VAT scheme or a combination of more than one.

Businesses that submit incorrect information or fail to pay VAT on time can be liable to pay penalties and interest so it is essential to keep your VAT affairs in good order. We can help your business to prepare your VAT return using your own bookkeeping records or from record keeping we have conducted on your behalf. If you require, we can also act as your agent for VAT, corresponding and filing your VAT returns directly with HM Revenue & Customs.

If your business is a limited company it is essential to understand and strictly adhere to corporation tax obligations. If you are a limited company based in the UK, you will be subject to corporation tax on your profits. Limited companies based outside the UK are still required to pay corporation tax where central control and management of the company is carried out in the UK or where they have branches operating inside the UK, on the taxable profits arising from UK business activities.

Your obligations include calculating how much profit your company makes for each accounting period and the amount of corporation tax payable on those profits. This information must be reported to HM Revenue & Customs on a corporation tax return form along with accounts and tax computations to support your return.

Filing your return late can result in strict penalties and tax paid late is subject to interest, so it is essential that you determine your company’s annual accounting date and ensure you meet the deadline.
