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 –
- The amount of VAT on each line of the invoice and the VAT rate charge
- The total amount of VAT on the invoice and the rate of VAT applied to all items
- Your VAT number
- If you’re a limited registered company you MUST include your company name
- 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.
