About VAT Rates
A value-added tax or VAT is imposed on most services and goods provided by registered businesses in the United Kingdom and some services and goods that are imported from outside the European Union. The default VAT rate in the UK is the standard rate of 20%, which increased from the 17.5% rate on the 4th of January, 2011. There are some things that are exempt or outside the scope of VAT, such as financial and property transactions, printing, postage stamps and publications. You can contact Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs (HMRC) on VAT Rates contact number helpline for general enquiries.
How VAT Works
Businesses can only charge VAT on their goods and services if they are registered for VAT. VAT is charged on various things, including business sales or selling of goods and services, hiring or loaning of goods to someone, commission, business goods that are used for personal reasons, and more. VAT-registered businesses must report to HMRC the amount of VAT they have charged as well as the amount of VAT they have paid. If you are a VAT-registered business, you can do this through your VAT return, which is normally due every 3 months. If you have charged a higher amount of VAT than you have paid, you need to pay the difference to HMRC. If you have paid a higher amount of VAT than you have charged, then you can reclaim the difference from HMRC. You can call them on VAT Rates contact number helpline during their business hours if you have general questions or concerns.
