Invoices from UK to Spain (final solution)
Thread poster: rufio

May 8, 2014

Hello people,

This is my first post in ProZ. I saw a lot of topics talking about this issue, but I didn't find a final solution to the problem of making invoices from UK to Spain as sole trader.

As many of you, I'm a freelance/sole trader working in the UK, not registered for VAT cause my earning are not too much for now.

My problem comes with spanish clients that demand me things like VAT numbers, VIES, ROI, or CIF to appear in my invoices.

Some people told me...

- You should have a VAT number for that (but I don't need it cause I'm not winning a lot of money now).
- You should be registered in the VIES/ROI to make "intra-community operations", then, they will give you a Business Number for that.
- You don't need nothing more than your UTR number.

So... when the spanish clients tell me... if you don't make the invoice as I tell you... we will not work together.

What should I do? Sorry if the final answer for that I somewhere in this forum, but I didn't find it.

Thank you so much!
