From 1 November 2019 partnerships, sole traders and other unincorporated businesses can join a VAT group if they control the other corporate bodies in that group.

 

The two main conditions to allow non corporate businesses to join a VAT group are that;

 

  • the business must be entitled to register for VAT as a separate business, and
  • the controlling party must control all of entities within the VAT group.
