Default Amazon Stealth + VAT = Confused.

Hello, Just to confirm with the Mods, Im not asking for tax advice or anything, Thats what my accountant is for.

Basically i have a main stealth amazon UK account with over 700 feedback. Ive now demolished the UK VAT threshold which is 77k. So now ive got my personal VAT number and this means anyone on a laptop can type in my VAT number and find out my Full name and Full Address. I even have an iPhone app which can tell me these details.

So now my problem is, if i type my VAT number into my account on amazon then they can find out all my real details which firstly wont match the stealth details and will also link me to my old banned account.

By UK Law, if you are VAT registered you need to provide every customer with a VAT invoice just incase they are also registered. So i think my only option is to try and make my own invoices which I have no idea how to do.

If anyone has any ideas or suggestions then it would be much appreciated to hear them because im fresh out of ideas.

Many thanks

Best thing to do is hop over to the HMRC and make sure you make a note of everything that is needed to go onto a VAT Invoice/Receipt;
HM Revenue & Customs: VAT invoices: what they must show

You can actually get an Excel template for creating VAT invoices directly from Microsoft too;
VAT invoice - price including tax - Templates -

Assuming you're not selling 100's of items each day, it shouldn't be too time consuming in order to create the invoices. Make sure to keep a copy for yourself too, electronically is fine, in case HMRC request them at any time.

I'm not too sure if there's many, if any softwares that integrate directly with Amazon in order to automatically create VAT invoices as Amazon offer this service fully themselves. It's always something worth looking into though, especially if you do ship a large number of items.

I wasn't aware that a persons details could be found out from a VAT number - are you sure about that?
