EliteEdge Accountants: Your MTD VAT Solution Provider

Navigating the complexities of Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT requires expertise and precision. At EliteEdge Accountants, we specialize in providing tailored MTD VAT services to businesses of all sizes, ensuring compliance, efficiency, and peace of mind.


Who Needs to Register for MTD VAT?

Businesses with a taxable turnover above the VAT registration threshold (£85,000 as of 2024) are required to register for MTD VAT and submit their VAT returns digitally through compatible software.

Voluntary VAT Registration:

Even if your business's turnover falls below the VAT threshold, you can choose to register for VAT voluntarily. This allows you to reclaim VAT on your purchases, enhance your business's credibility, and take advantage of VAT schemes that may benefit your operations.


Types of VAT Schemes:


1.      Cash-Based Scheme: 

Suitable for businesses with turnover under £1.35 million, the cash-based scheme allows you to account for VAT based on cash received and paid, rather than invoice dates. This can help with cash flow management by delaying VAT payments until you've received payment from your customers.


2.     Flat Rate VAT Scheme: 

Designed for small businesses with turnover under £150,000, the flat rate scheme simplifies VAT accounting by applying a fixed percentage to your gross turnover. While you can't reclaim VAT on purchases, this scheme may result in lower VAT payments and reduced administrative burden.


3.     Standard Accrual VAT Scheme: 

The standard accrual scheme is the traditional method of VAT accounting, where VAT is accounted for based on invoice dates. It allows you to reclaim VAT on purchases and accurately reflects your business's financial transactions.
