Is your business ready for Brexit? The UK left the European Union on 31 January 2020 and entered a transition period which is due to end on 31 December 2020.
From March 2019 if a business exceeds the VAT threshold (£85,000) within a 12-month rolling year it must join MTD from the beginning of its next VAT quarter.
Sign up for MTD for VAT at least one week before the vat return is due.
The MTD threshold is only based on taxable sales (net of vat) so they do not include exempt and outside the scope.
What happens if a business temporarily goes over the threshold, due to a one-off large job, but then reverts to under the threshold. They must join MTD for VAT but cannot withdraw unless they deregister for VAT.
