Hello, I am one of the experts on Just Answer and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
On arrival imports may have Import Duty and VAT applied bu Customs, although this does not always happen. Import duty forms part of your cost of sales as does the VAT if you are not registered for the tax. If you are then it can be reclaimed as an input in the normal way..
The imports might well be put in bond and only released on payment of the Duty and VAT. The reclaim would go through your normal quarterly VAT retuirn assuming that you are registered for the tax.
The telephone call charge does not crystalise until I notify that it has been successful which I will not be doing.
You do indeed, you will still be able to claim the input tax once you have registered.
You can reclaim VAT from up to 4 years before registration.
Any competent high street accountant should be able to handle this, it isn't rocket science.
