Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Did they become VAT registered in the meantime please?Alex
Ok- would it nullify the contract - no it would not.
By law they have to charge VAT if they are VAT registered and the supply attracts VAT
So in law they would have to charge VAT if they are registered and it qualifies for VAT.
Therefore to answer your question - does it invalidate the contract - no.
You may have some argument to negotiate on price, because of this change.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex
Thats an argument but it does not invalidate the contract which is what you are asking.
Neither is the fact it does not attract VAT. If its chargeable supply then it is. You need to check with HMRC to see if it attracts VAT
Does that clarify? Alex
Is it enough to cancel - no.
You may have an argument for breach of contract, but it does NOT make it void as a result.
You would be entitled to the difference but not to exit.
I am sorry its not the answer you want, I really am - but I need to be honest.Can I help with anything else today? Alex
