yes please could you clarify exactly what i need to put on my invoices.
can i invoice as "john and mary's leaflet distribution" even though there is no entitiy registered with hmrc in this name?
yes, thanks and so do i need to put my name and wifes name on the invoices too? or is "john and mary's leaflet distribution" enough? i thought there was some kind of requirement that people need to be able to identify exactly who they are dealing with?
no its not really getting any clearer. what "trading name" can i use. does it have to be my name or my wifes name? or can it be "j&m leaflet distributon?"
i think so. so just to be clear.
1. i need a "trading name" but it doesn't need to be either my name or my wifes name.
2. the trading name can be any name i choose
But you couldn't call yourselves LLoyds Bank of course for example
3. i can use as many trading names as i want and file the accounts to hmrc under the same business partnership
ok brilliant. that's all very easy :)
thank you alex
