If you are running a business in the UK, you may need to file a VAT return to HMRC every quarter. A VAT return is a document that shows how much VAT you have charged on your sales and how much VAT you have paid on your purchases. VAT stands for value added tax, which is a type of consumption tax that is added to the price of goods and services. The standard rate of VAT in the UK is 20%, but some items are exempt or have a reduced rate. The difference between the VAT you charge and the VAT you pay is either the amount you owe to HMRC or the amount you can claim back from HMRC. At Account Ease, we offer professional and affordable Vat Return Services for all types of businesses, including sole traders, limited companies, freelancers and startups.
To calculate your VAT return, you need to follow these steps:
1) Add up all your sales that are subject to VAT in the quarter. This is called your VAT taxable turnover.
2)Multiply your VAT taxable turnover by the relevant VAT rate (20%, 5% or 0%) to get the amount of VAT you have charged on your sales. This is called your output tax.
3)Sum up all your purchases that are subject to VAT in the quarter. This is called your input tax.
4)Subtract your input tax from your output tax to get the amount of VAT you owe or can reclaim. This is called your net VAT.
