Is it possible to find out if a company is VAT registered?

We have been asked to prepare the first accounts for a new company. The directors think that it is VAT registered and that the registration was done by the accountant who has prepared (what are being called) the "managment accounts" and that accountant is failing to provide information.

But the VAT recoverable balance has been increasing each month for about nine months and that suggest to me that they are not registered.

Can we look them up anywhere to establish whether or not they are registered?
