Vat Or No Vat


Recommended Posts

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.



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




Window clean £100

Sub total £100



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.
