I have registered my company for VAT on Friday, 7 October 2016 and my VAT Liability Date has been set to the 1st of October 2016.
I contacted all suppliers, requesting them to update my account with the VAT Number, then I requested from suppliers where I purchased items from that they credit my invoices and reinvoice me with the VAT Number on it, so that I can claim it as input vat.
However, the one supplier simply said that they are unable to credit my "old" invoice, and reinvoice me, as I was not registered for VAT when the purchase was made (which is the 5th of October).
Are they allowed to do this?
I hope that someone will be able to provide me with some clearance on this.
Thank you in advance...
