If you want to start working as self-employed, you must register with HM Revenue & Customs, but first make sure you have a National Insurance Number. After the registration, you will receive your Unique Taxpayer Reference (UTR) and HMRC will set up the right tax and National Insurance contributions records. You should keep your UTR safe because you will need it when completing your Self-assessment tax return.
If you are doing business in the UK but your turnover is below the threshold for registration, you may register for VAT voluntarily. Remember to regularly check if your turnover has exceeded the threshold and you need to register.
You may find it beneficial to be able to charge VAT on your sales and claim back VAT on your purchases in various ways. By way of example, if there is a zero VAT rate for the items you sell but you buy standard-rated items, HMRC will give you a VAT refund. Note that if you voluntarily register for VAT, you have the same rights but also responsibilities as in the case of compulsory registration.
The flat rate VAT scheme is aimed at simplifying VAT for smaller businesses with an anticipated turnover of up to £150,000 (gross) per annum. You pay VAT to HMRC as a flat rate percentage on your gross sales. The flat rate percentages vary depending on business activity. Under the flat rate scheme you cannot reclaim VAT on your purchases and expenses, but you can on larger capital purchases of equipment over £2,000. Once you enter the flat rate scheme you are free to leave at any time, but then cannot re-enter the scheme for 12 months.
If you need to close your business you should plan it carefully. First of all, it is important that you inform HMRC of your intent.
