Did you know that the VAT Flat Rate Scheme (FRS) changed from April 2017? From April you needed to do a calculation to check that you were not a “Limited Cost Trader” which meant that instead of using your FRS % for your trading (SIC) code, you will need to use 16.5%? This almost completely eliminates any financial advantages of being on the FRS and many businesses deregistered from VAT altogether. Was this an option that you were aware of?
