Flat rate scheme threshold to leave exceeding 2024

Understanding the VAT Flat Rate Scheme Threshold in the UK

For many UK small businesses, the VAT Flat Rate Scheme (FRS) offers a simplified way to handle VAT. However, with growth comes new challenges, such as exceeding the FRS turnover threshold of £230,000 (including VAT). This pivotal point requires a strategic shift in your VAT handling, and GM Professional Accountants stands ready to guide you through this transition.

Identifying the Right Time to Exit the FRS

Leaving the FRS isn’t just about turnover; it’s about timing and strategy. Key indicators include:

  1. Annual Turnover Exceeds £230,000: This is the primary trigger for exiting the scheme. Once your VAT-inclusive turnover goes over this limit, you must leave the scheme.
  2. Anticipated Growth: If you expect your turnover to exceed £230,000 in the next 12 months or your total income in the next 30 days alone to be more than £230,000, it’s time to plan your exit.
  3. Changes in Business Model or Expenses: Shifts in your business model or a decrease in VAT-chargeable expenses might mean the FRS is no longer the best option.
