Hi there, I'm not a VAT vendor but all my clients are and they need their VAT numbers to show on their invoices. How do I do that if I don't have a VAT number myself?

Hi tarryn1,

 

It sounds like you already knew that you need to set up your VAT Setting to show the VAT numbers of your customers in their invoices. You can still turn it on, and just leave the VAT Registration No. field as blank since you don't have one. Then, you can tag their sales transactions as Out of Scope.

 

Alternatively, you can add a custom field and name it as VAT# or something similar. Then, paste your customer's VAT number in there every time you create them invoices.

 

At the moment, those are the options we have to show your customers' VAT numbers.

 

If you need more help, feel free to go back to this thread. We'll be happy to lend you a hand.
