What are VAT/Tax Returns and how do they work?
As a business, you are required to submit a VAT return to HM Revenue and Customs every 3 months, even if you have no VAT to pay or claim.
Businesses who owe VAT to HMRC can choose to fund the bill once or twice a year, or alternatively, the most common method is to finance each new quart VAT return throughout the year.
What is a VAT loan or VAT Funding?
Paying VAT is not always a viable option for some businesses whose cash flow and capital can be limited to pay quarterly bills. This can be a disconcerting feeling for a vast amount of individuals, knowing that they owe a government organisation money. Forfeiting on the payment or being late is non-advisable and will most likely render strict enforcement actions by HMRC themselves.
This is where VAT is beneficial, to safeguard businesses from defaulting on payments and potentially ruining their businesses.
VAT loans are thus a type of business funding used to pay VAT bills and reduce the impact of costly late payment fines. Using finance can spread the cost of a VAT bill and improve company cash flow, which in turn can allow for increased competitiveness, growth and expansion within a business.
At JPM capital, we offer short-term business loans (secured or unsecured) which effectively turns a quarterly VAT payment in advance, into a monthly payment in arrears. This is a cash protection facility, which allows businesses to focus on building their business – without worrying every 3 months about how to manage the impending VAT payment.
