Online Payment of VAT

As of 1 April 2012, all VAT-registered businesses must file their VAT returns online and pay their VAT electronically. Previously, only newly-registered businesses and those with a turnover of more than £100,000 per annum have been required to file and pay their VAT online.

The new rules cover VAT returns filed for accounting periods beginning on or after 1 April 2012.

Once you start filing your VAT return online, you will receive an email alert to remind you when the next one is due.
