The short answer is NO, our address should not be used for VAT registration. When registering for VAT in the UK, you will need to provide your actual location. The VAT1 form requests the following information-
- Business contact details
- Business address (that is, the principal place where most of the day to day running of the business is carried out)
They DO NOT ask for the companies registered office address.
As your business is not physically located at our registered office service please do not provide our address as the ‘business address’. HMRC need to know where they can visit your business to inspect VAT records. You need to provide details of the actual business location. If you need more advice on ‘when to register’ for vat please contact your accountant or HMRC for guidance. Please note – we are not tax advisors so can not offer advice regarding taxation.
