Hairdresser's accounts : I am having a bad-hair day.

Hairdresser ... self-employed works in a (vat registered) salon and says she receives 50% of the takings for her work.

The only paperwork she managed to get from the salon was an invoice for the chair, for the whole tax year.

This invoice charged her VAT on the chair.

She says the amount shown on the invoice was the same as her earnings (50-50 split).

Would the Gross or net represent her takings?

If a customer asked for a vat receipt, would there only be vat on the salon's 50%?


The invoice for the chair also puzzles me.

Do I double the invoice value to get her turnover then deduct the invoice as expenses?

If the taking were split at the till, should she have received the vat invoice?
