What is VAT
The VAT is a tax which is applied at the point of sale in almost all parts of the United Kingdom. VAT in UK is one of the most complex, confusing yet important taxes you should have an understanding of (if you’re required to pay it) in the UK. If you do not know how it works, then you can get into serious trouble with your tax affairs in the UK.
In the United Kingdom, VAT is known as the Excise Duty and is the third-largest source of government revenue. It is generally collected and administered by HMRC, mainly through the Value Added Tax (VAT) Act 1994. The duties are generally levied, and paid by consumers with certain exceptions. A number of goods and services are exempt from VAT.
There are also a number of factors that can affect the amount of VAT in the UK, including where the money comes from, what you buy and the age of the item. There are some items that are not subject to VAT, for example-prescription medicine and some food and drink that are not actually consumable. It is also important to note that the rates of VAT in the UK can be lower for certain products and services than others.
