When Do You Need VAT Returns?


VAT Returns are a legal requirement in England and Wales under the Value Added Tax Laws 1994, updated 2022. Future changes are predicted as various international trade agreements are settled, so companies need to view their VAT Return calculations as an evolving process rather than a fixed set of rules. VAT errors have resulted in prosecutions in UK and international courts, emphasising the importance of full compliance.

Conditions & Complexities

VAT returns can be a complex area of accounting. For instance, there are multiple conditions regarding claims for purchases and expenses that have both a business and a personal use, which can particularly affect sole traders and self-employed individuals.

Charities are exempt from some charges, but not others, and the breakdown depends upon the nature of the operation. As such, it is important to work with experienced professionals such as Arnold Hill & Co who can untangle the bureaucracy and ensure that every detail is correct.
