VAT is charged on the sales and deductible purchases. The VAT return is assigned by HM Revenue and Customs. Your business must be registered for VAT, if the value of your taxable supplies exceeds a set annual figure (£81,000 from 1 April 2014). The VAT system is taken seriously and failure to register may result in a late registration penalty and/or a failure to notify penalty or in most cases you will be charged a civil evasion penalty.
