How can we improve Microsoft Invoicing?

Allow for disabling of VAT options

I am not a VAT registered business and, as such, I do not need my invoices cluttered with VAT (indeed, it makes them technically wrong as I have to mark everything as zero-rated to get the numbers right, even though that isn't quite accurate).

I recognise that for many larger businesses VAT is a legal requirement, but maybe this feature could be added with suitable disclaimers to warn unsuspecting users.

        It seems bizarre that a service that is aimed at small businesses should have no provision for businesses that do not need to register for VAT. I’m wondering if the US development team appreciates that there is a threshold for VAT registration and businesses below this threshold do not register and cannot use a VAT invoice? This limitation is particularly incomprehensible as most businesses that are over the VAT threshold will probably have a full accounting package and won’t need this simple invoicing capability.

        Many thanks - I shall do, but I'm not VAT exempt, I simply don't turn over enough to require VAT registration (nor am I working through a limited company).
        Also - you might like to know that I found the email notification for this thread in my junk folder in Outlook for Mac.
