Use form VAT98 if you're a farmer to register for the Agricultural Flat Rate Scheme as an alternative to VAT registration.
Use form VAT98 to register for the Agricultural Flat Rate Scheme as an alternative to VAT registration. If you register as a flat rate farmer you do not need to account for VAT or submit VAT returns - you do not charge VAT on your sales nor can you reclaim VAT on your purchases. But you can charge and keep a Flat Rate Addition (FRA) when you sell items to VAT registered customers.
Please send your completed application form to:
