VAT Registration and Tax Representative

VAT is a tax, which all businesses have to charge when they make business supplies (that is, they sell goods or services) in the UK or Isle of Man, when their prescribed annual turnover is exceeded.

Registering your company for VAT is a legal requirement under these main circumstances:

  • UK companies when the prescribed annual turnover is exceeded
  • As a non-UK company, importing any of goods and/or services into the UK
  • If you do not have any local employees, you will also need a tax representative who will represent your company in all matters relating to VAT and communications with HMRC

For VAT registration and VAT returns to the English tax authority HMRC will require the following documents:

  • Proof of all imports into the UK
  • In the case of there being no imports into the UK (up to this point), proof of your intention to import will be required. This proof can include: Commercial material in English, contracts with customers and partners, tenancy contracts for a production facility or offices etc.
  • A foreign tax registration and a foreign VAT registration, if you already have a company in a foreign country
  • Additionally there may be other documents required by HMRC during the registration process. We will forward all requests to you and ask that you submit the required information back to us as soon as possible.
