Frequently asked questions

  • Do I need to register my business for VAT?

    That depends on your turnover (excluding VAT-exempt products). Every UK business with an annual VAT taxable turnover of more than £85,000 needs to be registered. You can voluntarily register for VAT if your turnover is below the £85,000 threshold.

  • Can I submit a VAT return through QuickBooks as soon as I sign up?

    Yes. As long as you've uploaded all your relevant data and have registered for a VAT online account with HMRC.

  • Can I still use QuickBooks for my VAT return when the new reporting system starts next year?

    Yes. Our software is designed to be fully compliant with the Making Tax Digital (MTD) laws that came into force in April 2019.
