Check VAT numbers

 

Businesses are encouraged to verify Value Added Tax (VAT) registration numbers of their own and suppliers on regular basis. The UK VAT registration number is made up of 9 digits for example 111 2222 33. Your company's VAT registration number is printed on your VAT registration certificate issued by HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

VAT registered company must submit VAT returns regularly with HMRC to avoid the VAT registration number being rendered invalid or cancelled. If you require help with preparation and filing of your quarterly VAT returns, our accountants will be more than happy to assist you.

Another reason to verify VAT registration number is to ensure the VAT registration numbers are genuine and that you are not paying for VAT on your goods and services unnecessary. Only VAT registered businesses are allowed to charge VAT to their customers. If you paid for VAT on purchases to suppliers that do not have valid VAT numbers you will not be able to reclaim that VAT amount from HM Revenue and Customs.

Verify European VAT or TVA numbers

UK limited company registered with VAT do not normally charge VAT to customers from European Countries who can provide valid TVA or VAT numbers. Before you remove the VAT amount from your sales invoice, it is strongly recommended you verify the TVA or VAT numbers of your customers and note that number on your sales invoices.
