Budget 2014 – VAT

Thresholds

The VAT registration threshold and deregistration thresholds will each increase by £2,000. This will leave the registration threshold at £81,000 and the deregistration threshold at £79,000.  Both increases will take effect from 1 April 2014.

New motor vehicle scale charges will also be effective for return periods beginning on or after 1 May 2014, and can be found here: www.hmrc.gov.uk/vat/forms-rates/rates/rfsc-2014.pdf

 

Prompt Payment Discounts

The VAT treatment of prompt payment discounts is to be brought into line with EC legislation.  At present, a supplier who offers a prompt payment discount can account for VAT on the sales price less the prompt payment discount, regardless of whether the customer takes the discount up or not.

From April 2015, when a customer doesn’t take up the prompt payment discount VAT will have to be accounted for on the full selling price.

The introduction of the new rules is being accelerated for businesses which provide broadcasting and telecommunication services and who don’t have to provide a VAT invoice to their customers. These businesses will have to follow the new rules from 1 May 2014.

Businesses which currently offer prompt payment discounts should start looking at their systems to make sure they can comply with these new rules once introduced.

For anyone looking for an accountant that ­understands the crazy world of dentistry, then look no further than Dodd & Co. Since taking us on as clients they have understood our needs and told us in no uncertain terms what we must do if we are to succeed. We use them for a full range of services; so many members of our team are in contact with many members of their team. Whatever the ­question, whether it is to the PAYE dept about maternity rights and pay or if we need assistance forecasting figures for the future, it is always dealt with professionally, accurately and quickly. Each and every member of the staff at Dodd & Co is friendly and approachable. They will do all they can to help, and if they can’t help you, they will find a man (or woman) that can. They are quite happy for you to call if you just want to “pick their brains” about something. We use them as a great sounding board to compare where we are locally and nationally, as they have a wealth of statistics on dentistry as a whole. Quite simply, we cannot say enough good things about Dodd & Co and don’t know where we would be without their sound and honest advice.
