Businesses in the UK with a taxable turnover of £85,000 or more have to compulsory register for VAT with HMRC.

Other businesses with a turnover of less than £85,000 can voluntarily register for VAT and this may be beneficial where they can claim VAT input on the expenses incurred (providing they are making taxable supplies).

With Making Tax Digital (MTD) becoming effective from 1 April 2019 for all VAT-registered businesses, the task of preparing and completing VAT returns has become even more complex and tedious than before.

In addition, businesses which supply goods and services to EC countries have to prepare EC Sales list every quarter (although there is no liability to pay to HMRC for this exercise).
