We are a VAT registered company (voluntary as our turnover

Resolved Question:

We are a VAT registered company (voluntary as our turnover isn't very large just yet) Question is - Do we have to charge VAT on every single invoice? Part of the work we provide is services to the education sector and we have been told that "education
work is VAT free". Is this correct? - are there other scenarios where we wouldn't have to charge VAT - or is this guy completely wrong and we have to charge VAT on everything if we are VAT registered??

Dear Friend, Hello and welcome. Thank you for providing an opportunity to assist you. To begin with, If you’re registered, you have to charge VAT when you make taxable supplies.. In other words, if the service / supplies are exempt from VAT, you will NOT charge VAT even if you are registered. Further to this, vide VAT Notice 701/30, Education and related activities are "Exempt" from VAT. So, you will NOT charge VAT while supplying services to them. The following are some of the very informative resources. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/rates-of-vat-on-different-goods-and-services https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-notice-70130-education-and-vocational-training/vat-notice-70130-education-and-vocational-training I am sure this would help.
