1. I have a problem. I am self-employed in the UK. Two years ago I bought a service from one company in Germany, they charged me per month. They said they would not add VAT as I have a company in the UK. I was happy. But now I read somewhere I should have paid VAT here in the UK. Is there a way to sort it out? What can I do about it? It will be like 200 pounds only...
2. I realized I had made a mistake as I started a new service with one company a month ago (from EU, outside UK) and I did the same, no VAT. How can I pay the VAT here in the UK if I am self-employed
On the invoice it says that I am responsible for sorting out and paying the VAT in my country (UK). It does not mean anything?
Ye it is on the reverse charge basis.
Does it mean I have to do a VAT return in HMRC even though I am not registered for VAT pls?
