I think this may be a shot in the dark, but wanted to get others opinions.
I have a client that traded for a 12 month period and have now ceased trading.
In mid-month 10 they exceeded the VAT threshold and after 12 months their VATable turnover was £132k
They are now back to an employed position.
My question is under these circumstances is it even worth writing to HMRC to ask for an exception to VAT registration on the basis of this being a temporary instance, or are they likely to just register the business for VAT for the 2 month period in question?
Anyone elses experience of a similar situation would be much appreciated.
