New Online VAT Services

HMRC has made some changes and additions to the VAT online services. These services aren't functions used on a day-to-day basis, they will speed up and simplify notification procedures which have, until now, been slow to update.

So what are the changes?

The following actions can now be completed entirely online:

  • Changing your business and trading names
  • Amending your principal place of business address
  • Adding or amending business contact details (phone number, email address and website address)
  • Notifying a change of bank account details
  • Amending the period (quarters) your VAT return covers
  • Cancelling or applying for a VAT registration
  • Viewing or printing your VAT registration certificate
  • Applying to use the annual accounting or flat rate schemes
  • Attaching files, e.g. A scanned PDF document, to application etc.

As long as you are enrolled for the VAT online services you'll have automatic access to the new functions.

If you need help and assistance completing or updating your VAT details or registering for VAT and VAT online then contact Bookkeeping4u.
