Effective Date of Registration (EDR): failure to notify

Failure on the part of traders to notify their liability to be registered does not affect the Commissioners’ legal responsibility to register them from the correct effective date.

Further guidance and suitable types of evidence for establishing the EDR can be found in VATREG26000.
