VAT registration assistance

£59 + VAT

As soon as your company is registered you will receive an e-mail containing a link to complete our online VAT questionnaire.

Once you have filled in our VAT questionnaire we will prepare and submit your VAT registration application to HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs), who should process it within 20 to 30 days. Once your application has been successful, we will e-mail you the VAT Registration Number and HMRC will send you a VAT registration certificate by post.

What is included:

  • Preparation and submission of your VAT registration application to HMRC.
  • Access to a VAT registration specialist to answer questions that you may have. 
  • Instructions sent to you by e-mail on how to create your own HMRC Government Gateway account to activate your VAT registration online. 

The VAT assistance service is for companies that are limited by shares (LTD). Unfortunately, we cannot complete the VAT registration for other types of companies such as LLPs.

Must I register for VAT?

If your company turnover exceeds the VAT registration threshold of £85,000, or it is expected to exceed this figure in the next 30 days, then you must register for VAT with HMRC.

Can my company register for VAT voluntarily?

Yes, you may apply to register for VAT before and/or even without reaching that level, which registration will also allow you to claim back the VAT that you have paid on your purchases. Most companies register for VAT voluntarily. 

Must I provide any specific information to apply for VAT

If you are a UK resident director then you must provide your National Insurance number. If you are a non-UK resident director then you must provide one piece of photographic ID, which can be either a passport or driving licence, and two pieces of secondary evidence from among the following: Your birth certificate, your marriage certificate and/or a utility bill that is dated within the last 3 months.
