When do I need to register for VAT?

As of 1 April 2024, businesses that have sales of over £90,000 are required to register for VAT. This is measured over a rolling 12 months, so it is important to track your sales to see when this threshold is breached. Once you are over this threshold, you are required to register within 30 days.

You are eligible to register voluntarily for VAT however based on any level of sales.

Certain businesses are unable to register for VAT as they make VAT ‘exempt’ sales, such as a residential property business that lets out its properties to tenants.
