Important Amendments to Flat Rate Scheme for Small Businesses

HMRC have re-written Notice 733 covering Flat Rate Schemes for Small Businesses.

Full details of the amendments can be seen here.

After a recent Tribunal decision, HMRC agreed that bank interest is no longer included in exempt supplies. This means that businesses that have included bank interest (at the insistence of HMRC) now need to review the turnover for their Flat Rate Scheme and exclude any from their Flat Rate Scheme calculations.

Make sure you review previous Flat Rate Scheme calculations where bank interest has been included and reclaim any over-paid VAT!
