UK VAT Agency

Do I need a UK VAT Tax Agent?

If you need to be registered for UK VAT and are based outside the UK, you will need to complete VAT paperwork and deal with the HMRC here.

UK VAT registration could be needed if:

  • You import goods into the UK
  • You own goods or property in the UK.
  • You are supplying goods from a stock held in the UK.
  • You are a non-UK business selling to UK customers.
  • You supply digital services to the UK.

Additionally, you will also need to know:

  • What products should have VAT charges applied, and at what rate
  • You will need to decide on whether you should opt for flat or standard rate
  • When zero-rate is applied
  • What can be claimed back, and what can’t be
  • What documents you need to obtain and retain

Life will be made much easier and you will ensure compliance if you employ a UK VAT Agent to help you.
