VAT and Small Businesses
VAT and Small Businesses is a comprehensive guide for owners of small businesses and directors of small companies in the UK, along with their tax advisers. The book deals with the general principles of value added tax (VAT), UK compliance issues (registration and deregistration, taxable supplies, time of supply, record-keeping, and the VAT return), and Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs' powers to enforce VAT compliance. It also explains the nature of input and output tax, the conditions for TOGC (taxable as a going concern) treatment and the VAT rules on international trade: B2B, B2C, and the reverse charge. There are a number of special VAT treatments which a small business needs to consider - such as the simplified accounting schemes and trade-specific rules - which are all covered in the book.
