Wow....this is great thank you so much.
My plan is to back date my VAT registration 15 months. The reason for this is that 90% of my sales are 0 rated.
So the will I be able to claim the VAT back that I have paid to Amazon.
Once I give my VAT Amazon will they automatically add VAT to my products?
Thank you for that Tony but now I am very confused - It says on the HMRC website that I can back date my vat claim up to 4 years for any business costs where there is VAT to claim back. It also says that I can back date 6 months for claiming VAT back on service (which I assume is what an Amazon seller fee is.
My last question on this service was related to my back dated VAT claim and I was told to gather all the reciepts for the period that I want to back date to.
Nobody that I have asked advice from has said that I can only claim on stock that I hold. I sell printed goods and make to order. I don't hold any stock at all for more than 5 days.
