There are many elements involved in running a business – theyonly become apparent once everything is up and operating; when we run that small trading post from the back bedroom, neat little sales mounting up over the months until eventually you need that bigger outfit. There are responsibilities that come with the joyful tinkle of cash rolling in though and many folk fall foul of these in their enthusiasm to get to the next break. Once your vat taxable goods sales the limit per year, you must register. Knowing these things is imperative before you get in to really hot water. Ignorance is not bliss various tax men will indeed come knocking if you disregard this and other matters. Getting proper business advice is key to running your business properly, legally and satisfactorily. It is possible to teach yourself as much as you can from the government website, but frankly, an advisor will know the best route to satisfying the rules but also not paying over the odds because you don’t know if you can claw back certain taxes.
