I think you might be worrying unnecessarily??? [hopeful rictus grin emoticon] Why not ring HMRC and ask for some help here

hionestly don't worry. VAt is much simpler than you might think. Don;t worry about reclaiming old stuff just start accoutning for VAT on the day he becomes VAT registered and your VAT package should calculate your VAt payment for you and probabaly even print out a return (or at least print out what you need to write on the return).

If your boss wants to reclaim old VAt he can pay someone qualified to do it.

Don't worry! What does the business do? (then we can comment on whether there are likely to be VAT issues!)

With my dad for example- removing a memorial for burial is zero rated (as it's a necessary thing and not a luxury), most of the funeral is zero rated but the gravestone and flowers and things like that have VAT on them. Dh sells IT equipment and there are little idiosyncracies there. Second hand equipment differs to the new stuff. Personally I'd ringt he VAT office and have a chat

or alternatively you can just look on the invoice to see whether it is zero rated/exempt/17.5%. Or you could read the long tedious manual....

I think you'll find that the services your company are providing are all VATable at 17.5%, as as Kew says, just look at the invoices from your suppliers to see whether there is VAT on them or not.
