I have asked Sky for a VAT Invoice and they have refused to provide one.
They will not allow me to register as a business.
Sky say they do not provide Broadband for business purposes. They know I am a landlord and they are happy that I have many accounts, one each for each of my houses used for domestic purposes.
With Virgin Media broadband, I have a "bulk" account designed for landlords who provide it with the places they rent out, but they also have failed to provide me with a VAT Invoice so far. I am still asking for one and they are looking into it, but I need to know what my legal right for a VAT invoice is.
The VAT inspector told me that I must get Invoices with the VAT etc number printed on them. I am not allowed to find out the VAT number and add it myself. The invoice must show the breakdown of cost & VAT calculated by the supplier
I need an Invoice (VAT or not VAT) for the purposes of my accounts and Tax Returns etc
I will need VAT invoices for my business when I register for VAT (I am close to the turnover point at which I must register for VAT). And once I register for VAT I will be allowed to claim for expenses (eg: broadband) going back 1 year according to my accountant
My accountant tells me I must get (VAT) Invoices. He does not know what the legal basis for this obligation is. He has asked me to ask a solicitor.
If I must get (VAT) invoices, must there also not be the equivalent and opposite legal obligation to provide (VAT) Invoices.
Please tell me what the legal basis for the obligation is that I must get such invoices
And then what the legal basis is for the obligation to provide them
This so I may provide this information to Sky & Virgin
