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:

P.O. Box 6
