VAT-registered businesses pay VAT when they sell to another business or to a customer. This tax is also charged on goods imported from countries outside the EU or brought into the UK from elsewhere in the EU. There are three main rates of VAT, depending on the type of service/goods the company provides: standard (20%), reduced (5%) and zero.
