VAT invoice: Invoicing in a foreign language

VAT Regulations 1995, regulation 13B says that VAT invoices can be written in any language. However, we can require an English translation of invoices received in the UK by issuing a notice in writing to the person who has received them. The translation has to be provided within 30 days of the date of the notice.
