VAT Registered

Recommended Posts

This has cropped up on here before, I always wonder…

 

The 2021 threshold is £85000, allow for 4 weeks holiday a year and that’s £354 per working day. This means that there are three ways to stay under the vat threshold.

1. You work part time. Fair enough, I know a few people who do this.

2. You work for less than £350 per day, if you’re a subby climber fair enough, if your a contractor then you’re an idiot to work this cheap.

3. You do a lot of cash jobs and only put half your turnover through the books…

I still don’t see how any serious contractor can not be vat reg.

If I gave you that impression I apologise. I'm not suggesting for one minute that you are too think to reason with. 

You didn’t.

In that case, what a bloody strange thing to type. 

Just so we are clear; I don't think you are thick, I just have no respect for your opinion (based on what I've read).

The only person who loses out with VAT is the poor sap right at the end of the line who's not registered, and can't claim it back. 

Like Mr. & Mrs. Miggins who pay £1200 for a £1000 tree job with no discernible benefit to them whatsoever.

Which is why when faced with a quote for £1000 (no VAT), £1100 (with VAT) and £1200 (with VAT),  they will go with the no VAT company.

And yet plenty of vat registered companies still manage to carry out domestic work

Absolutely Steve, price definitely isn’t the overriding factor for the more desirable customers.

 

I was just pointing out that I don’t think it’s true that everyone wins with the VAT game.

I have 10s of thousands of pounds to play with however I like.

A retired climber with 10s of £1000s of VAT per ¼ ‘to play with?’  Whilst working part time in garden shed?

 

What are you doing importing guns, drugs and girls?

 

Sure you haven’t over sharpened your pencil??

Blimey, I add a bit of detail to make a point and look what happens. 

 

Just to keep you in the picture, no, I don't take 10's of thousands of VAT per quarter, but do per year. Sorry for not making that as clear as you'd like. 

 

I've explained what I do on this forum before, it probably wouldn't be difficult to find.
