You must register your business for VAT with HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) if your VAT taxable turnover is more than £85,000 (subject to change by HMRC guidelines).
When you register, you’ll be sent a VAT registration certificate. This confirms:
- your VAT number
- when to submit your first VAT Return and payment
- your ‘effective date of registration’ - this depends on the date you went over the threshold, or is the date you asked to register if it was voluntary
