VAT Threshold

As respected VAT consultants and advisers we understand that many businesses constantly struggle to understand even the fundamentals of VAT. Most companies are not aware of the various VAT schemes that can be used to your company’s advantage by turning VAT into a money making opportunity. We liaise with our clients to guarantee that the essentials requirements are completed accurately: e.g. registration for the correct VAT scheme and understanding what is taxable and what is not. Most importantly we look to ensure that opportunities are not missed particularly in areas such as land and property.

Completing VAT returns can be a lengthy process. The complex procedure of regulations imposes an enormous administrative inconvenience on businesses. With the VAT rate being so high in the UK, errors in calculating VAT can be expensive – the harsh system of penalties, interest charges for errors and the late submission of returns all combine to make it a priority that your VAT is completed in the appropriate manner. Our cost-effective VAT services will relieve you of this inconvenience.

Our team of VAT professionals will keep your VAT affairs organised. We will complete the registration procedure on your behalf (which includes setting you up online), ensure that you are collecting the correct amounts for each transaction, and ensure that you make payments and file VAT returns correctly and on time with HMRC’s new online filing service for VAT. Together we provide a comprehensive bookkeeping and VAT accounting service, we will always give our time to those who require VAT advice at any time or in any situation.

The Flat Rate Scheme

The flat rate scheme is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to turn VAT into a money making opportunity if your business does not involve high amounts of taxable expenditure.

Once registered on the flat rate scheme, you will be charging your clients 20% VAT on your sales. However, you will only be required to pay back a lower percentage to HMRC which is based on your trade (a 1% reduction is applicable to all businesses after your first year of VAT registration on this set percentage). When you’re on the flat rate scheme you can also claim VAT back on company assets over a specific amount.

Employment Tax – PAYE/NI Contributions

Pay As You Earn – PAYE – is a system designed to collect tax directly from earnings or pensions throughout the tax year. PAYE involves three separate parties, the employee, the employer (or pension provider) and HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

In the majority of cases, tax may be deducted using PAYE. How often tax is deducted of course depends on how employees or pensioners are paid – for employees and the majority of pensioners it is almost always weekly, monthly, four weekly or fortnightly; however, some pensions are only paid quarterly or even annually.

For more information on PAYE then visit our dedicated PAYE page or contact us today.

CIS & IR35

Dyer & Co has specialists available to help clients with all technical accounting issues and these include Construction Industry Scheme (CIS) and IR35 matters. Both areas cover contractors and sub-contractors and can be a minefield for businesses, given that any failure in compliance can lead to significant fines.

Our expert team can help relieve the burden of the technical treatment of these transactions as well as a good deal of stress and heartache. As a well-established and trusted firm that encompasses areas of Financial Accounting, Registered Auditors and Tax Accounting, you can trust us to deal effectively with your CIS and IR35 responsibilities.

The Pension Regulator – Auto-Enrolment

The ever changing employment environment has resulted in the introduction of Auto-Enrolment, which all employers with at least one employee must ensure they are compliant with the regulations set by The Pension Regulator.

These duties include enrolling those that are eligible into a workplace pension scheme and contributing towards it.

Dyer & Co’s team of skilled auto-enrolment specialists are here to support you with the additional burden of auto-enrolment compliance, including finding the most suitable and efficient structure to process and comply with the regulations that come with auto-enrolment.
