The majority of optical businesses operate with the 'de minimis' system which allows opticians to claim back VAT on the purchase of exempt equipment and the recoverable tax on residual non-attributable purchases of up to, but not exceeding £625 a month, £1,875 a quarter or £7,500 a year.

By spreading the VAT you can reduce the risk of exceeding (and thereby compromising) your VAT de minimis limit.

Please contact us to talk about your individual VAT circumstances.
