Bit of a specialist question.
If a person goes to work for a foreign company, based in an EU country, for 6 weeks, as a freelance, does the worker have to be VAT registered? The worker would not earn enough to meet the registration for VAT threshold in this financial year.
The foreign employer has asked for the potential employee's VAT number: is the simple answer "I don't have one. I don't charge it, you don't have to pay it on my salary" ?
Any answers appreciated as would be any links to legislation that the foreign employer could look at.
