Client is stopping trading at the end of the month and I have his authority to cancel the company VAT registration.
I don't seem to be able to do this for him online. Is that right?
It seems only the client/company can use their govt gateway account to do it, or I can fill in an online VAT7 for him and print it for him to sign and post.
Am I missing something?
VAT 700/11 says that you can cancel online and your agent can do this for you, but I can't seem to do it via my agent gateway nor agent services account logins. I just get an error message saying "agents cannot use this sign in page"
I presume it's so agents don't go round wildly deregistering clients but I'm not sure why not when we can register on a client's behalf (or at least I think we can, it's so long since I've needed to do it).
Any ideas please?
