VAT Accountants and Tax Experts

VAT Planning can sometimes get the best of us all, but here at H. Stone and Co, our specialist team will provide you with the most appropriate VAT scheme for your business. 

Our accounting services benefit clients in Greater Manchester and the North West, from sole traders and smaller businesses to larger companies. We will ensure all your VAT returns are completed on time, with the time-consuming bookkeeping being completed as part of our consultancy services. 

We have over thirty years of accountancy experience with clients across the UK and VAT services to suit all companies. If you have found yourself paying more VAT than you believe is correct - it's time to act! Our team wants to help as many UK businesses file their returns correctly and save money on their VAT returns. 


We deal with VAT registered businesses and those yet to register, ensuring all VAT advice is provided. There is no compulsory registration until you exceed the VAT taxable turnover threshold of £85,000. Most businesses do not register, but a voluntary registration despite your threshold can save you money in certain circumstances. Sole traders are not exempt from this registration if you earn over £85,000 in your financial year. 

We aim to make your year-end accounts easier and take the stress and pressure off you in our making tax digital phase. This VAT Scheme was established in April 2019 and requires all VAT returns to be completed via HMRC-approved software, which our team are trained in. 

Your bookkeeping should be done on a quarterly basis, ensuring you pay VAT at the correct rate. Our team offer the necessary support for your VAT refund, staying on top of paperwork and help you submit VAT returns promptly and correctly to HRMC.


VAT tax returns are an important part of bookkeeping records. These involve filling out and submitting income forms to pay HMRC your required tax during your financial year. It is your legal requirement to submit a VAT return on a quarterly basis, or penalties can be enacted. A VAT return is something most businesses will have to become familiar with, as most purchases include a "Value Added Tax". 

This calculation documents the amount of due VAT on sales minus the VAT reclaimable on purchases, with HMRC giving you the difference back where there is more reclaimable than sales. 

Every three-month accounting period, you should be looking at and submitting the total sales and purchases from your business - which we can assist our customers with. 


If you are yet to register for VAT as a business, we recommend completing the process, which our company can assist with. The taxable payments threshold is £85,000, meaning you must register to pay VAT if you earn over that amount during the accounting year. 

There is no threshold for businesses outside of the UK and globally, but you must register when your goods reach the UK. Those that register late will be required to ensure all fees are paid sooner rather than later. 

If you are not earning that amount during your financial year, you are not legally required to complete a VAT registration form. However, our team recommend you do, and we will happily discuss this with you over the phone. 

Even if your business is below the current UK threshold, there are many benefits to completing the registration. Your business will have a level of authority when you are VAT registered, and you could even reclaim some of the start up costs from the beginning of your company.
