Can HMRC revoke a voluntarily VAT registered business?


Customer is registered for VAT voluntarily (turnover a lot less than threshold) - behind with their Vat payments altho returns have been submitted as they have become due.

Can HMRC revoke the registration?

I have suggested this to client as (imho) whilst they remain registered they are never going to 'catch up' but they are unwilling to deregsiter (not sure whether they see it as a climbdown / lack of credibility or what really).

Many thanks for help / suggestions!
