UK VAT Registration

VAT registration in the UK is a statutory requirement with HMRC if your business VAT taxable turnover is more than £85,000.

The UK  VAT application may take 8 to 12 weeks to be processed.

Most companies require a VAT registration number to trade successfully with other businesses .

Verify VAT Registration

Once you have a VAT registered business, you can use the HMRC online service to verify the UK VAT numbers of businesses you are trading with. You will require your own VAT number to use this service.

HMRC – VAT Requirements

You will have certain responsibilities once your  UK company is registered for VAT

Once we have incorporated your company and we have the Registered Number, we then instruct a firm of accountants to assist you with VAT registration and other tax registrations.

The HMRC will only issue a VAT Registration Number to a company when they are satisfied that it is carrying out a taxable business in the UK.

VAT registration requires that you have an UK bank account.

We will also register your company for Corporation Tax and PAYE.

Registration for VAT requires a trading presence in the UK, such as a physical address, staff, or evidence of substantial trading.  A Registered Office address will not suffice,


We can obtain the EORI Registration after the UK VAT number is issued
