How does Cash accounting works? for VAT

The Cash Accounting Scheme is ideal for businesses that experience cash flow issues. Instead of accounting for VAT on invoices issued and received, you only pay VAT to HMRC when your customers have paid you.

Similarly, you can reclaim VAT on purchases when you have settled the supplier’s invoice. This scheme helps align your VAT payments with your cash flow.
