Import VAT and FRS

Hello,

 

I am looking to find out how I account for import VAT paid on supplies (stock) imported from Denmark on our return as a FRS registered business.

Following the advice here - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/complete-your-vat-return-to-account-for-import-vat it states:

 

Flat Rate Scheme for small businesses

If you’re using the Flat Rate Scheme for small businesses and are accounting for import VAT on your VAT Return, for VAT Return periods starting before 1 June 2022, you must add the value of the imported goods to the total of all your supplies, before you do the scheme calculation.

 

But I am not too sure what box to add this to on our VAT return.  I  terms of the mechanics I can see that our import VAT statement is available for February here as we are registered for postponed import VAT - https://www.tax.service.gov.uk/customs/documents/postponed-vat and I just need to somehow declare and pay it.

 

The fast courier used (DHL) have already invoiced us for duty charges etc separately but since Jan 1st 2022 we now have to pay VAT separately rather than have DHL add the import VAT costs along with any other charges such as duty etc.

 

Any help would be great.

 

Thank you.

 

Steve.

This is now resolved.  I stupidly thought the reference to supplies was the supplies that we purchase but as a b2c retailer it is referring to the products we sell (sales) Smiley Embarassed
