    the issue though, is even though most of your customers may be not vat registered. they will pay it on most of the goods they buy, signage is only a small percentage of a business’s outgoings, so not sure how you will have the advantage over people or companies that charge vat, especially if you have to pay vat on your materials?
    A small builder or decorator, for instance will still be paying vat for his materials. they are only available from stockists that are vat registered. so not sure why they would not pay the vat for signs?
    one way is to include the vat in your quote., rather than adding it as an "extra" that way the buyer feels happier. But you must have a bit of small print saying its included
