We need to know more about your business activities to decide if you should be paying VAT on your water services.
Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) has chosen the 1980 Standard Industrial Classification (SIC) activity codes as a method of identifying which groups of customers must be charged VAT on their water services.
That's why we ask you to provide the three-digit SIC code that applies to your main area of business activity. We use this to determine whether we need to apply VAT to your water services.
If you don't tell us your SIC code, HMRC require that we charge you VAT by default. This is important because we cannot cancel debt more than four years old.
If you have several sites, the SIC code for your largest business activity must be applied to all your sites, including domestic properties.
For more information and to confirm your position, please download our VAT leaflet below.
Please return your completed form to:
PO Box 508
If you submit a false declaration this may lead to penalties being imposed by HMRC.
