    VAT Registration: When shoud a business start invoicing including VAT?

    Hi,

    When should a business start invoicing VAT? Once the VAT registration forms has been submitted? Or only once the VAT registration has been finalised?

    Thanks!

    You you will receive a VAT103 after registration which states the date on which the company can start charging/claiming VAT.

    I'd agree with Geraldene. You need the VAT number on your certificate in order to issue a valid tax invoice anyway, so its not strictly possible to charge VAT before that. Also, just because you you have submitted the application, does not necessarily mean that they will issue you a number.
