    I only became VAT registered because a client would only do business with me if I was. It's not actually that much work to be honest as long as you keep up to date with everything.

    I think I paid £50 for Companies Warehouse (not Companies House) to do this for me.

    Having said how easy it is to do, I wouldn't actually recommend becoming VAT registered voluntarily. Only do it if you reach the threshold.

    yer not to bad for a company, but as a window cleaner becoming VAT reg, you will have to tell all your customers and charge them an extra 20% ontop of what they pay already! those £10 jobs become £12 etc! see how many you might loose because of this!
