Hi all,

I need a VAT number of some company in the United Kingdom. I am not able to locate a site, where I can find this.

Can you advise, if such a registry exist or not?

I found only http://www.companieshouse.gov.uk/ but there is just registration number, not VAT number.

Thanks for any reply.

Best,
Michal.

I don't think there's a list of VAT numbers, but you should, of course, be able to get it from that company.

Not sure whether that helps you...?

Ralf

I only know of the opposite May 14, 2004

I mean, I know you can check if a VAT number is correct and existing (all EU countries). Here is the link:

Sorry I cannot help you
Have a nice weekend

Verifying of VAT number May 14, 2004

All customer have to give your their VAT number.

"You can verify the validity of a VAT number issued by any Member State by selecting that Member State from the drop-down menu provided, and entering the number to be validated."

See:

In the UK it is not compulsory to register for VAT unless the annual turnover exceeds £56,000. Small translation agencies, for example, might fall below this threshold.

Exactly. It's worth noting, of course, that businesses who have opted not to register for VAT (even if they don't have to, they can register) cannot deduct input tax on business purchases. IOW they have to pay VAT just like a private person.

Best regards, Ralf

New Link to EU VAT Confirmation Jan 11

Both 2004 links are no longer valid. You can now confirm a Value Added Tax number of any member European state here http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/.

After Brexit, however, the U.K. will no longer listed.

Unfortunately, I don't know how to start with a company name and get its VAT number, except to ask the company itself.

There is a threshold of about 80k pounds a year. Below that figure your UK private limited company doesn’t have an obligation to register for VAT. Therefore, the first question is if they have VAT number at all.
