Before I have a sense of humour failure (its been a long week already!) am I missing something? He's so instant that he gets one I've started to doubt myself!!

All the chap needs is evidence that it is a new build, with planning permission, that falls within the rules in VAT Notice 708: https://www.gov.uk/g...nd-construction

Funnily enough today I noticed something interesting..........
the invoice he's presented me that started this whole debate off doesn't have a VAT number. It does include a line for VAT at 20% though. He's a sole trader, not Ltd (well as far as the paperwork states).
I'm beginning to wonder weather the actual issue is that adding the 20% is for his pocket not the revenue! It would explain why he's so apposed to removing it!
Anyway I've told him I'm paying nothing more than the pre-vat total and he can "walk" if he doesn't like it.
Crikey this bloody business of self building is hard/stressful enough without idiots like this :-/
