5 Things You Must Include On Your Invoice If You’re VAT Registered

By admin - 2nd May 2013

When it comes to VAT, invoices can get a little confusing.

So we’ve made it easy for you with the 5 thing you NEED to include if you’re VAT registered and invoicing a customer –


  1. The amount of VAT on each line of the invoice and the VAT rate charge
  2. The total amount of VAT on the invoice and the rate of VAT applied to all items
  3.  Your VAT number
  4. If you’re a limited registered company you MUST include your company name
  5. The time of supply (also known as tax point) if this is different from the invoice date


Think about writing these down on a post-it somewhere and sticking it above your desk so you can easily and quickly refer to it if you’re unsure about something.
