If you have just started in business or have a relatively low turnover, you may not be required to register for VAT. HMRC set a limit for a business's annual taxable turnover. If your business's taxable turnover exceeds the limit you must register your business for VAT. Once you have registered for VAT you will need to maintain VAT records - details of the VAT you have been charged on purchases and the VAT on your sale you have charged to your customers.
