Amazing link for VAT registration date

MonsoonMonsoon Font Of All KnowledgeFMAAT, AAT Licensed Accountant Posts: 4,071
We all know you need to know this date in order to register for compulsory online filing and that it's not always straight forward to get this info from HMRC.

Enter Italy.

Put the VAT number in, and it will chuck out the registration date.

Genius! :D

    Alas I can't take the credit, I found it on an AccountingWeb post, but I felt it was good enough to share :lol:

    Glad it helps!

    Thanks MS
    That's nice for name and address but there's no registration date which is why the Italian one is so useful (but being v slow today, I hope it's working!)
    Have bookmarked your one too :D

    I've just tried the Italy one with 2 different companies but am not getting a registration date just verification of name and address. As I don't speak Italian should it be in the Data di inizio attività: ? It just has ND at the side.

    The website did work when Monsoon originally posted the link, but I think it stopped working a couple of weeks after.

    It has been known to work in the mornings but not the afternoons so it could be worth re-trying on Monday morning.

    if anyone comes across anything simular it would be really useful please pass it on

    Thanks for this. Yes I noticed it wasn't chucking out a reg date last few times I tried it. Shame....

    Open to other offers!! :D
