    Hello all,

    Sorry if this question has been answered many times before.
    Im in the process of invoicing a commercial customer for a window cleaning job I done for them.

    Thanks
    Im a sole trader, and only stared doing commerial businesses.
    Say for arguments sake my invoice was for £100
    Do they take 20% of the price for thier VAT or do they pay me in full..and I pay the vat at the end of the tax year..
    Do I charge it NET OR GROSS..

    P.s im not registered for VAT..as im no were near the threshold

    Hello no longer a user.

    No mate im not charging them VAT.
    Im billing them at a price say £100 for instance.
    No mention of VAT.

    Do they pay me the £100
    Or do they take thier 20% off and pay me £80

    Its a mind field out there lol

    Just state on your invoice VAT N/A

    Example:

    Window clean £100
    Sub total £100

    VAT N/A
    Total Due £100

    Anyhow by law if vat registered you have to also include a vat number on every invoice so not seeing it they will understand you are not vat registered.
