Any thoughts comments on what he should do would be most welcome.
"HMRC told me I was using the wrong EC VAT no.
They complained about an EC VAT no of a German client whose VAT ID they couldn't identify.
So I checked at least 4 times: No mistake on my site.
I contacted my client and told him that maybe presented the wrong no.
He has only this one and he furnished proof by producing the VAT no. assignment letter from the German tax authority.
Despite having brought this to HMRC's attention, they still state that I am using wrong EC VAT no. and threaten me with a penalty for not correcting the ECSL!
How should I correct something that isn't wrong at all??????
So I find myself at present a little bit lost in this kind of "logic" as I don't know were I went wrong!
Any advice is much appreciated!"
