Registering for VAT
If you are in business and you are making taxable supplies you must consider whether you have a liability to register for VAT. It is important that you register at the correct time.
You must register if:
- At the end of any month the total value of your taxable supplies you have made in the preceding 12 months, on a rolling 12-month basis, exceeds £85,000 or
- at any time you expect that the value of your taxable supplies in the following 30 days will be more than £85,000
- If you are liable to, or you require to, be registered for VAT in the Isle of Man the forms listed below must be completed (where applicable).
- If you have bought a business as a going concern you may be able to keep the last owner's registration number.
- The forms are available in Acrobat pdf format to be downloaded, but must be submitted by post (with any supporting documentation) to the:
Isle of Man Customs and Excise
P.O. Box 6
Isle of Man 1M99 1AG
If you require further guidance or advice you should refer to the relevant VAT Notices or contact the Business Advice Centre.
