If you are an employer you should have received information from the Taxman about operating PAYE under Real Time Information (RTI).
The Taxman apparently believes that anyone who does business in cash must be a potential 'tax cheat'. This is ridiculous of-course, but his latest business record checks campaign is based on this fallacy.
The Taxman has announced a taskforce to investigate tax avoidance in landlords in South East England.
It's one number (£77,000 from 1 April 2012), so why is so easy to get it wrong? We are talking about the compulsory VAT registration threshold in the UK. If your VAT taxable turnover (sales) total for the previous 12 calendar months exceeds this compulsory registration threshold, or the sales your expect to make in next 30 days will exceed that threshold, you MUST register for VAT within the next 30 days.
