Are there benefits in being VAT registered?#AskAMS

There are generally two reasons to register for VAT:

Compulsory: When your sales exceed £85,000 in a 12 month period.

Voluntary: If registering your business for VAT will be a benefit to you (the benefit is that you can reclaim VAT paid on supplies and expenses).

If you are VAT registered, you must also charge VAT to your clients. Simple when working for VAT registered clients but it can also be problematic.

Example: A builder replaces a roof on a privately owned house.

If VAT registered, they can reclaim VAT they've paid on supplies for the job. When billing customers, they will have to charge them VAT which they cannot claim back because the customer is not registered. 

If not VAT registered, they cannot reclaim VAT on supplies. However, their clients will happily also not have to pay VAT!
