This service is for customers who would like to register their company for VAT. We will prepare and submit your VAT registration application to HMRC, who take up to 30 days to process applications.
Any company that is trading can register for VAT, even if their turnover is less than the VAT threshold of £85,000. Most companies register for VAT on a voluntary basis, as this provides the perception of being an established business with a large turnover.
Select Buy Now and complete the application form with your details.
A limited company is required to register for VAT when its taxable turnover for the previous 12 months exceeds £85,000, or is expected to exceed this figure in the next 30 days.
Yes. As long as your company is not listed as dormant, it can voluntarily register for VAT. Most companies register for VAT voluntarily, as VAT-registered companies are perceived to be larger than ones who are not.
VAT-registered companies are also able to reclaim VAT paid on goods and services they buy, saving them money in tax payments.
It usually takes around 20 - 30 days for your company to be registered for VAT.
We will send your VAT Registration Number to you by email as soon as we receive it and HMRC will send your Certificate of VAT Registration by post shortly thereafter.
This service is only for use by limited companies registering for VAT.
If you are a UK resident director, you will need to provide your National Insurance number. If you are non-UK resident director, you will need to provide one piece of photographic ID (either a passport or driving licence) and two pieces of secondary evidence from the following list:
Your principal place of business address is the address your company does the majority of its work from. It must be based in the UK and it cannot be listed our address, as your company will not carry out the majority of its work from our address.
The EORI Number will be sent by email to you directly from HMRC, a few days after your VAT Registration Number has been sent to you. You should therefore receive your EORI Number about 35 days after you place your order.
