What is VAT?

Taxation process is something that all business owners should see in daylight and be mindful of all the benefits of its registration. Value Added Tax (VAT) is a general value added to goods and services. It is dedicated to almost all goods and services that are bought or sold in European Union, so basically, any item or service which should be exported to other countries besides European Union are not considered to take Value Added Tax.

Do I fall under the category of VAT Registration Businesses?

HMRC requires businesses from 1 April 2019 to submit their tax, in case their turnover eclipses the threshold of £85,000.

What is CIS and what should you do as a CIS contractor?

In HMRC words:

You must register as a contractor with the Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) if:

  • you pay subcontractors to do construction work
  • your business doesn’t do construction work but you usually spend more than £1 million a year on construction
  • You may be a sole trader, in a partnership or own a limited company.
  • If you’re not sure if you need to register, check HMRC website: Link.

 

You normally need to register as an employer with HMRC when you start employing staff or using subcontractors for construction work.

The Construction Industry Scheme deduction rates are:

  • 20% for registered subcontractors,
  • 30% for unregistered subcontractors,
  • 0% if the subcontractor has gross payment status, for example, they don’t have deductions made.

You must pay these deductions to HMRC - they count as advance payments towards the subcontractor’s tax and National Insurance bill.
