    quote Martin:

    Peter I used the builder as an example because you had but I did say a start up business, if a builder was just starting out he may well leave registering for VAT until he had to.

    We are going a bit of topic, but if I was starting any new venture, that bought in large quantities of materials, such as a builder would, then one of my first priorities would be to register for vat, Ok there are a lot of cowboys out there that get away without being vat registered, but i for one would on that issue alone, would not employ then to do any important work. By not being vat registered it says to me they do not have a good track record, people who supply just labour, are in a different category,
    just my opinion
