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 Shelf companies we sell are Non-Trading, they have instead been voluntarily VAT registered with HMRC.

Transfer VAT Registration

When you purchase and take over the shelf company and want to keep using its VAT number we transfer advising HMRC within 21 days of the transfer application.

Once transferred you must promptly set up new direct debits on your VAT online account with HMRC.

Buy VAT Registered Shelf Companies

In the UK in order to be VAT registered, you may have to wait for 8 to 12 weeks. VAT is necessary to start a business in a very smooth manner, as without VAT number companies may find it difficult to trade with your business

Buying a VAT registered company off the shelf enables you to start your business immediately. If you are in a hurry or have decided not to delay the operations of your company and start trading as soon as possible then a VAT registered shelf company is the ideal solution.

Verify VAT Registration

Once you are a UK 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 do this.
