Hi, I'm new here. I have been running my business for 5 years. In the last year I have had to become VAT registered. My turnover is not going to increase from this point as there aren't the hours in the day, and when you take the VAT amount off the turnover it is the same as the VAT threshold - yet I'm having to hire more staff to run the service and as its service based there is extremely little I can claim VAT back from. I cannot put my prices up as they are as high as they can be but I don't want to limit my business and turning down that £20,000 of business as it will restrict me so much and will reflect negatively on new and existing clients. I've looked at hiring out my company to my employees and I can't see it working. Is there a way of part hiring out the overspill part of the business? Is there anyone who could advise on other solutions or what type of person would you advise talking to about this? Accountant/business mentor etc? Thank you.
