Do I have any filing obligations with HMRC after VAT registration?


My company was registered just over 2 months ago but hasn't done any trading. I registered for VAT immediately after my company formation and I would like to know what are the filing obligations with HMRC?



You will require to file vat returns online with HMRC (for most companies this is on a 3-monthly basis) and pay any appropriate taxes by the due date.

Your VAT return will have to include the following information:

  • Total sales and purchases
  • How much VAT you owe
  • How much VAT you can reclaim
  • The amount of VAT you can reclaim from HMRC
