Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

You must register for VAT with HMRC if your business VAT taxable turnover is more than £82,000. Your effective date of registration is the date you you went over the threshold for registration or the date you ask to register if it was voluntary registration.

Be mindful, you may get a penalty depending on how much you owe and how late your registration is.
More information on when to register can be found here

Hello,

Actually I need to register to apply for VAT MOSS because I provide Online Marketing Services in UK and abroad.

One of my customer insist that I sent him invoices with VAT number.

Melissa, thank you for your reply.

The same principle applies for application for VAT Moss. I have answered your question on related topic recently.

If your client wishes to have VAT invoices effective Sep 2015 then you register wef 1 Sep 2015 unless you have already reached the threshold for VAT registration.

I hope it is helpful.

It would be possible but be mindful of the fact that you may get a penalty depending on how much you owe and how late your registration is.
