VAT Calculation

How does VAT work?

Your company will need to submit VAT returns to HMRC on a monthly, quarterly, or annual basis. The return summarises the VAT collected on sales and the VAT incurred on expenditure during that period. If the collected figure exceeds the VAT incurred, you pay the difference to HMRC. If the VAT incurred is greater, HMRC will refund the difference.

Paying your bills

HMRC only accepts a direct debit or internet banking as a method of payment. They do not accept cheques. If you are having trouble making payments, contact them straight away.


VAT in the UK is typically charged at:

  • 20% on goods and services.
  • 5% is applied to some health, energy, heating, and protective products and services.
  • 0% is applied to a range of products and services to do with health, building, publishing, and kids’ clothing 

Some services and sales of goods are outside the scope of VAT (like stamps and financial and property transactions). Instead, businesses charge VAT based on what they sell and how much money they make.

Your VAT registration number

The government gives your business a unique nine-digit number, prefixed with 'GB'. Company numbers are only given to VAT-registered businesses and can be found on your registration certificate, which also outlines when your company passed the registration threshold and when your first VAT return is due.
