All VAT registered businesses are eligible for this low cost solution

InstantVAT Refunds are quick and easy to set up and don’t require you to change your existing VAT submission process. Best of all, this service is available to all VAT registered businesses.


Once you've signed up, our system automatically detects when you've submitted your VAT refund and how much you're owed. This allows us to make sure you get your InstantVAT Refund as soon as HMRC verifies your VAT return.

Normal refunds from HMRC take 5 to 30 working days (and this is the best-case scenario). With InstantVAT Refunds, after you submit, your money arrives in half the time.

Each InstantVAT Refund costs 2%+VAT of the total VAT refund amount. This means you’ll get 97.6% of your next VAT refund in half the time it takes HMRC to repay.

Of course! After you sign-up our service will inform you of your eligibility. If you're eligible and still don't want the service, you can easily toggle it off at any time. 

You can easily toggle on and off our service on the settings page of our portal (or feel free to email us). If the service is toggled off when you submit your VAT refund, you will just have to wait for HMRC like usual.

Linking your HMRC account allows us to see when you submit your VAT refunds and how much you're owed. This means we can make sure you get your InstantVAT Refunds as soon as HMRC verifies your VAT return. Linking your account helps us stay efficient, cost-effective and means no admin is required.
