Track and file VAT under the Flat Rate VAT scheme


All major VAT schemes
Manage and file VAT under the three main VAT schemes: Cash, Flat Rate and Standard.
About the Flat Rate scheme
The Flat Rate VAT scheme makes it easier for businesses to manage their VAT, if their turnover is below £150,000.
If you are allowed to use the Flat Rate VAT scheme (check with your accountant or HMRC) then you simply pay VAT as a percentage of your turnover. You don't have to calculate the difference between VAT you collect and VAT you pay.
