How far back can I Voluntarily Register for VAT (without being fined)?

September 2, 2022

You can voluntarily backdate your VAT Registration Date for a maximum of 4 years from the date your application was received. This can be done without penalties providing you are genuinely a voluntary registration for VAT and not a mandatory registration.

Example

If your company incorporation date was 17th December 2016 and you submit your VAT registration application on 2nd September 2022, your earliest VAT registration date would be 3 September 2018.
It is important to note that you need to charge VAT on all your historic sales from your VAT registration date, so you need to ensure that you are genuinely able to recover the VAT from your customers in this period. If you are not able to do this, then you need to be sure that your input VAT reclaims are going to exceed your output VAT charges for this backdated period.
Speak to your accountant first, as this may not be a sensible financial decision!
