What is VAT? An indirect tax Charged on most goods and services, supplied within the UK is borne by the final consumer
VAT is a tax that's charged on most goods and services that VAT-registered businesses provide in the UK. It's also charged on goods and some services that are imported from countries outside the European Union (EU), and brought into the UK from other EU countries. In other words….
A type of consumption tax that is placed on a product whenever value is added at a stage of production and at final sale. The amount of VAT that the user pays is the cost of the product less any of the costs of materials used in the product that have already been taxed.
The scope and nature of VAT Three essentials needed before VAT can be charged Taxable person Taxable supply Business
Taxable person - One who is or should be registered for VAT Taxable supply - Everything which is not exempt or outside the scope of VAT Business - It must be made in the course of furtherance of a business carried on by a taxable person.
Input and output VAT Input VATOutput VAT Businesses pay input VAT on their purchases of goods and services. Reclaimable from HMRC. Registered businesses charge output VAT on their sales of taxable goods and services. Payable to HMRC.
Types of supply Supplies can be taxable, exempt or outside the scope of VAT. VAT is charged on taxable supplies but NOT on exempt or supplies which are outside the scope of VAT. Only taxable supplies are taken into account in determining whether a trader needs to register for VAT.
Items not covered by VAT Exempt supplies Outside the scope of VAT
Exempt items insurance providing credit education and training, if certain conditions are met fundraising events by charities, if certain conditions are met membership subscriptions, if certain conditions are met most services provided by doctors and dentists finance: this includes wide range of financial services, such as making loans, hire purchases etc.
Outside the scope of VAT There are some things that aren't in the UK VAT system at all – (outside the scope of VAT). They are not taxable supplies and no VAT is charged on them. Examples: non-business activities like a hobby - for example, you might sell some stamps from your collection fees that are fixed by law - known as 'statutory fees' - for example the congestion charge
Rates of VAT Taxable supplies are charged to VAT at onf of three rates: - Zero rate – 0% - Standard rate - 17.5% (default rate) - Reduce rate – 5%
Examples of reduced-rated items domestic fuel and power installing energy-saving materials sanitary hygiene products children's car seats
Examples of zero-rated items food - but not meals in restaurants, hot takeaways or classed as luxury items. books and other printed matter. (e.g. newspapers, books and maps). children's clothes and shoes public transport.
The difference between exempt and zero- rated Traders making exempt supplies cannot charge VAT to their customers. Traders making zero-rated supplies charge VAT but at 0%. The key difference is that traders making zero-rated supplies can reclaim the input tax they suffer, those making exempt supplies cannot.
VAT registration compulsory to register if taxable supplies exceeds the registration limits. TESTS FUTURE PROSPECT HISTORIC TURNOVER Cumulative total for the last 12 month exceeds the registration limits of £68,000 Notify HMRC within 30 days when it exceeds. Registration is effective from end of month Notify HMRC before the end of 30 days. Registration is effective from the beginning of the 30 days Taxable supplies for the next 30 days in isolation are expected to exceed £68,000.
CONSEQUENCES OF REGISTRATION Once registered, a taxable person must start accounting on VAT: Output tax must be charged on the taxable supplies. Each registration trader is allocated a VAT registration number. Each registered trader is allocated a tax period for filling returns. Input tax is recoverable on business purchases and expenses. Appropriate VAT records must be maintained.
NUMBER OF REGISTRATION A person can be registered only once. Where a partnership is concerned, separate business carried by the same partners, will have single registration.
VOLUNTARY REGISTRATION ADVANTAGES DISADVANTAGES Avoids penalties for late registration. Can recover input VAT on purchases. Can disguise the small size of the business. Business will suffer the burden of compliance with all VAT administration rules. Business must charge VAT. This makes their goods comparatively more expensive than other unregistered business.
RECOVERY OF PRE-REGISTRATION INPUT VAT VAT incurred before registration cannot be accounted for as input VAT. If these conditions applied, then it can be treated as input tax and can be reclaimed. The goods must be acquired for business purposes and should not be sold or consumed prior to registration. The goods have not been acquired more than three years prior to registration. The services must be supplied for business purposes. The services should not have been supplied more than six months prior to registration. GOODSSERVICES
Deregistration A person must deregister when he ceases to make taxable supplies: notify HMRC within 30 days of ceasing to make taxable supplies. VAT registration is cancelled from the date of cessation or a mutually agreed later date.
A person may voluntarily deregister even if the business continues and if there is evidence that taxable supplies in the next 12 months will not exceed £66,000: starting at any time. The onus is on the trader to satisfy HMRC that they qualify. VAT registration is cancelled from the date of request or an agreed later date.
Effect of deregistration VAT output tax must be accounted for on the value of fixed assets and stocks held at the date of deregistration, on which a deduction for input tax has been claimed. The final tax liability is waived if it is ≤ £1,000.
VAT on sale of Business Sale of business Normal taxable supply Transfer of a going concern Outside the scope of VAT if conditions met Charge output VAT on sale price
Transfer of registration Both the transferor and the transferee may make a joint election, for the transferor’s registration to be transferred to the transferee. The transferee assumes all rights and obligations in respect of the registration, including the liability to pay any outstanding VAT.
