When you run a business, tax liabilities are part of the annual cost cycle and must be met in a timely way to avoid costly fees. Businesses typically submit their VAT return to HMRC on a quarterly basis, even if they have no VAT due to pay or reclaim. However, unexpected bills do happen and these surprise costs can be detrimental to businessesVAT loans can help businesses to obtain short-term finance in order to meet their tax obligations and to free up cash.

What is a VAT loan?

Businesses sometimes use a VAT bridging loan as a short-term means of spreading a VAT bill and improving the company cash flow in the process. By doing this, they can focus on delivering their underlying strategy for growth, competitiveness and/or expansion, whilst implementing a longer-term arrangement to pay all VAT monies due.

Businesses that do owe VAT to HMRC can choose how they pay it. Some pay their tax bill annually or bi-annually, but most will finance every new quarter’s VAT bill across the year in order to better profile their costs.

VAT loan definition

VAT loans, also known as VAT funding, are a form of business finance used to meet the cost of VAT bills and to avoid – or reduce – the cost of fines levied by HMRC for late payment. They are a useful finance product for businesses who wish to retain access to their cash flow for business purposes.

How does a business VAT loan work?

Simply tell us what your VAT liability is, and provide some basic information for us to engage with our panel of lenders. We will provide you with a tailored illustration which tells you how much the repayments will be. Many clients choose to draw down their funds each quarter in order to free up essential cash flow. Usually, lenders will also pay the funds directly to HMRC under the client’s name.

  • VAT loan amounts of between c. £2,000 and £10 million
