A client query:

We have decided we would like to use the VAT flat rate scheme. I am about

to invoice for the first time under the new company. Should he add 17.5% VAT

or less? Also what do we need to do to register for this scheme?

and in reply:

Yes, you still invoice with 17.5% VAT on.

For guidance on the scheme, including how to register, see our web site

you can generally backdate the registration to the start of the quarter.
