From 1 April 2010 many VAT registered businesses will have to switch from paper to online VAT
Returns. From that date, if your annual turnover on 31 December 2009 was £100,000 or more - or if
you become VAT registered on or after 1 April 2010 - you will have to submit your return online and
pay VAT electronically.
Mazuma recommend that you sign up to use VAT online services even if your turnover is below
£100,000, as you have an extra 7 days to submit your VAT return and pay your VAT bill. It also saves
you the hassle of posting your return to HMRC and you do not need to worry about it getting delayed
or lost in the post!
Mazuma also recommend you sign up to use the VAT online services as soon as you have read this leaflet, rather than waiting until your next VAT Return is due.
