Why should you be checking your VAT numbers?
Failure to take reasonable care validating VAT numbers can result in unexpected VAT costs and penalties.
The misuse of VAT numbers is a key aspect of many VAT frauds and an area where a lack of due diligence in the supply chain can impact a business’s reputation with HMRC and contribute to a change in HMRC risk rating.
Validating VAT numbers in bulk on a regular basis represents a key compliance check for most businesses, to ensure that the VAT treatment applied to an invoice (or self billed invoice) can be justified based on the profile of the supplier or customer.
