A word of warning about scams

HMRC have made us aware of recent increases in scam phone calls, emails and texts. If someone contacts you or your employees claiming to be from HMRC saying that you owe tax and face arrest, are due a tax refund, that your National Insurance number has been compromised or asking you to transfer money or give bank details, it is likely to be a scam.

Search GOV‌‌.UK for the HMRC 'scams checklist' and to find out how to report tax scams - www.gov.uk/guidance/identify-hmrc-related-scam-phone-calls-emails-and-text-messages

We hope this information helps you and your business, and we’ll continue to keep you updated.

With COVID-19 likely to subdue the amount of allowable expense claims in 2020/21 tax returns, there’s no time like the present to get started on yours.

It’s more pressing if you submit a paper return, with a midnight deadline on 31 October 2021. For digital returns, the deadline is midnight on 31 January 2022.

There’s no reason why you can’t get ahead of the game and file your return. Share your 2020/21 records with us and we can take it from there.

Any ‘taxable person’ who makes ‘taxable supplies’ of goods or services, generally within the UK, will need to consider whether they should be registered for VAT.

Since the criteria for VAT-registration is based on taxable supplies being made, it is important to be able to identify what the taxable supplies are. As with all things VAT, this is not quite as straightforward as it may sound.

Talk to us and we can iron out whether a supply is taxable and a transaction is within the scope of UK VAT.

As a VAT-registered business, you will essentially act as a collecting agent for HMRC. Your business can recover the VAT it incurs on purchases (known as input VAT), but in return must charge VAT on sales (output VAT).

The difference between the input VAT incurred and the output VAT charged is either paid over to HMRC or refunded each time the business submits a VAT return.

The UK VAT rates currently in force are standard (20%), reduced
(5%), and zero (0%).

We can handle all areas of your business VAT.
