VAT – Charging the correct rate

The VAT rules are becoming increasingly complex and businesses need to ensure that the correct rate is applied to the goods and services they supply.

HMRC have recently updated their guidance on VAT rates. It provides a list of goods and services which you can check to determine which rates of VAT apply and which items are exempt or outside the scope of VAT: VAT rates on different goods and services – GOV.UK (

The guide is not a comprehensive list, and you may need to check the appropriate VAT Notices that deal with certain supplies in more detail. We can of course assist you if you are unclear on the correct rate to apply.
