How much is the UK VAT threshold?

The VAT threshold is the amount of money that your business can earn before you need to register for VAT. Businesses only have to pay VAT once their annual turnover exceeds the VAT threshold.

When you’re registered for VAT, your business must:

  • Charge VAT on all goods and services sold to customers
  • Pay VAT on stock and merchandise that you buy for your business
  • Open a VAT account and keep a record of VAT
  • Submit VAT returns to HMRC

You must register for Value Added Tax if your taxable turnover exceeds £85,000. Taxable turnover is defined as all turnover generated by sales that are not VAT exempt. Even turnover on which the VAT rate is zero is classed as taxable turnover. Standard rate VAT in the UK is charged at 20%, and the reduced rate is 5%.

If a business has turnover of above the threshold then they must contact HMRC and register for VAT.

What happens once I meet the VAT threshold?

If your taxable turnover crosses the current VAT threshold. You have 30 days to inform HMRC and register for VAT.

Once your company has completed its VAT registration, your business will be responsible for:

  • Charging VAT on the goods and services you sell to customers
  • Paying VAT on the goods or services you buy for your business
