This process involves obtaining a VAT registration number, which officially recognizes the business as a taxable entity. Once registered, businesses are required to charge VAT on their taxable supplies and can also reclaim VAT paid on their purchases. VAT registration is essential for businesses that meet the required turnover threshold, ensuring compliance with tax laws.
