Have Tax Questions? Ask a Tax Expert for Answers ASAP
Hello, I am Keith, one of the experts on Just Answer, and pleased to be able to help you with your question.
In basic terms 'You can't do that there here!' Have you been charging VAT and recovering input tax whilst doing this?
I can only advise you if you tell me whether or not you have been collecting VAT and reclaiming input tax in connection with your new business.
You must contact your VAT office to remedy the position. Register your new business for VAT, then issue an invoice quoting the new VAT Number and cancelling the original ones. We seem to have caught this mistake just in time. If you do this before contacting the VAT office then they will almost certainly endorse your action.
I do hope that you have found my reply of assistance.
