Registering for VAT may be beneficial
You dont need to hit the threshold to register for VAT, you can do this volunatarily.
Why? Your business may benefit from it.
Basically, a business will pay VAT on all purchases it makes (known as ‘input tax’) and then charge VAT on all sales it makes (known as ‘output tax’). If a VAT-registered business receives more output than input tax in a VAT period, it will pay the difference to HMRC, otherwise the HMRC will refund the difference if the business pays more VAT than it receives.
