VAT Threshold

Q) I’m a growing business and I’m aware that my turnover could mean that I need to register for VAT soon. Could you tell me what the threshold is please?

A: The VAT threshold will depend on whether you are supplying goods or services. For services the threshold is €37,500, for goods it is €75,000.

It’s important to note that you are obliged to register for VAT where the turnover thresholds are exceeded or are likely to be exceeded in any twelve-month period. This means if you feel sales in the next 12 months will exceed the threshold then you should register from that point on.

For persons supplying both goods and services where 90% or more of the sales is from the supply of goods then the threshold for Goods will apply.

When registering you should always opt for the cash receipts basis of VAT, if appropriate. This will assist your cashflow by allowing you to return VAT on debtor receipts and take a deduction for  both VAT on creditor payments and crucially unpaid invoices.
