i am employed by my VAT ltd company.
I am contracted to work for another UK based company.
i work offshore in the oil and gas industry
i went abroad 3 weeks ago
i usually work in the north sea, but my last invoice charged and the next one due was from working abroad
i am a British citizen
i will usually work 2/3 weeks offshore then home for 2/3 weeks
i have been charging VAT on previous invoices, but was informed by the company i have been hired by that i was unable to charge VAT on the two invoices in question as it was work abroad
Thanks for that.
I have provided my services for several companies since setting up my ltd company. I was not employed by the company as it is not classed as regular employment, in that the y may not ask for my services again or it may be several months between contracts.
The company sub contracts the work to me. So if they are also based in the uk( main office in Scotland) what would you suggest i tell them with regards ***** ***** sorry if i am not being very clear. i have been given a lot of conflicting advice from colleagues and my accountant is less than forth coming with advice.
