The deferral of VAT payments between 20 March – 30 June 2020 provides an opportunity for businesses who are liable to register for UK VAT but have not yet submitted the registration application. Any business who were to register for VAT and submit a first return with a payment due to HMRC between 20 March and 30 June would receive automatic time to pay until March 2021. This would only apply for payments due in the period.
As such, any business in the position where they have not registered despite being liable to do so would benefit from extra time to pay the VAT due from the first return than would be the case under normal circumstances.
Therefore, if you are liable to register for UK VAT and have not yet done so, please call our free helpline and speak to one of our expert consultants.
