This will make sure that your VAT-registered customers may reclaim the VAT that they have paid.

I complained and said I already have done half the job and now I have to abide by your 90 days payment terms, they said they can't get round there systems but I can back date the invoice.

Yes Your invoices before VAT registration must not include VAT but you can include the VAT amount in the total amount of the invoice to make sure that you do not lose income in the period after you applied for VAT registration but before you receive your VAT registration number and explain to your customers why you are doing so.

HI All, Quick question, I am ready to start billing a client, this will be my first time billing through this new company.

I received a P/O back in April and the client said that in order to expedite payment terms I can invoice them with an April date on the invoice.

However, I have planned to hit over the 81k of revenue in the next 12 months so will have to be VAT registered which I am processing now.
