Thanks Alex. I didn't charge any VAT on the meals or drinks - an invoice is issued at the end of each evening for all of the meals, I used a standard triplicate pad for this and it literally just said the set price, no breakdown of VAT or VAt number. The drinks were paid for individually through the till, there is no vat no on the receipts (if they ask for one). The club committee assumed that I was VAT registered as my partner had been and they are saying that the club members assumed the same. The price of the meals is agreed in the contract with the committee and the only reference to VAT in the contract is in the commission schedule where it says "all income derived from the supply of catering services under the agreement (exclusive of VAT)" then it lists the price of the meals per person (the same amount that I charged to the club members) and the percentage commission due per meal.
Thanks Alex, do I need to do anything with regards ***** ***** amended my sa tax return to include the commission that was actually due. The only thing I'm worried about is the commission spreadsheets I did took the vat off the total sales amounts and then worked out the percentage commission from there, so I underpaid them by the amount of vat taken off - I've recalculated the sheets to take the commission of the full amount and told them that I need to pay them what was inadvertently taken off the commission. Can they take this any further and would I be in any trouble with hmrc?
