VAT Registered

Recommended Posts

Who cares what you bill, there is no need for all this cock swinging ego crap on what was an interesting thread. I've been off AT for a few years, I've missed some of the regular peoples story's and opinions but the new breed see ms to have a lot to say when they don't need too, like they have to have the last word.

It’s wrong to say that a £1000 job is a £1200 job with vat because the Vat reg company gets 20% off everything they buy so they can afford to work for a bit less.

 

Having said that if you’re worried about the 20% making you too expensive then you’re doing it all wrong. There will always be some idiot who will work cheaper than you. So don’t even try and compete. Our turnover divided by 240 (working days less holiday) divided by number of employees =£357 per man per day. Less subby turnover and its more like £300/man/day.  So our real world turnover is over £600 for a 2 man team and over £900 for a 3 man team. We still win plenty of domestic work: over £250k per year….Stop worrying about being vat reg and start charging a proper rate for your services and you won’t look back.

It's not just this thread, it's in most of them. 

 

We were having a perfectly interesting debate about VAT until it got dragged into nonsense by someone with nothing to say. 

 

Anyway, VAT, anyone who isn't registered, get yourself registered. Businesses aren't supposed to pay VAT, the end user is.

Nice kill. Was it down with one shot? What rifle are you using.

This is by no means unique to arbtalk. You’ve just summed up the internet
