Ok im not the best at forms etc and paperwork,im tidy and organised,but struggle at times.Why is nothing in the way of VAT explained straightforward?(again this may be me!) Here's my story in simple bullet points.
Went through VAT threshold in 17th JAN 2012
Tried three weeks to personally speak or see my Accountant and failed!!! I managed to speak to his asisstant who told me to invoice everything up by the end of Feb,as i got advised you get 30 days so I would be vat registered from the 1st March 2012,my accountants were supposed to have filled out a form for me and just have sent it to me to sign.......22nd of March arrived and no form arrived so I went online and done it my self.
I have now had my form through from the VAT with my registration Number and My Effective Date which is indicated as the 1st of Feb,which as far as im concerned is wrong? Maybee this was a messup on my behalf filling out the form-i do remember getting confused with date of expectation etc
Ive then read on the internet varying things on charging VAT, The way I understand if my Effective date was the 1st of March,then I start charging for VAT from the 1st March.
I just wondered what the best thing is to do?
