Normal VAT and FRS (Flat Rate Scheme)

Normal VAT and FRS (Flat Rate Scheme)

Normal scheme is where VAT is collected on company sales @ standard rate of VAT (currently 20%) and pay this across to the Customs & Excise less the VAT that your company has incurred on its expenses.

FRS (Flat Rate Scheme) is where VAT is collected on company sales @ standard rate of VAT but pay across to the Customs & Excise at a given rate on the gross turnover ie sales value + VAT (from 1/4/17 this rate for nearly all of of our clients will be 16.5%  with reduction to 15.5% in the first year).There is no allowable deduction for input tax on expenditure (except for capital items over £2000).

The FRS aims to simplify VAT Accounting for small businesses. The scheme is available to most businesses whose taxable turnover (excluding VAT) is expected to be less than £150,000 in the next 12 months and total business income less than £187,500. The scheme can continue to be used until VAT inclusive annual turnover exceeds £225,000.Whether or not to apply depends on the relationship to forecast Vatable income Vatable expenditure.
