Correct me if I am wrong but if you are a company yourself like you say, you do not need to pay VAT to begin with.. so you can reclaim the VAT anyway? they just over charged you, the fact that their VAT registration is not in order, does not matter, you should not have been charged VAT anyway because you are a company and companies do not pay VAT (if YOUR registration is in order).molly_molly wrote:Hey, it was the person who does the bookkeeping for me, cause I'm working as toiminimi, and this remodelling is for my office.

Who told you to pay the 13% to Vero?
So I guess in this case, the remodeling company should refund you the VAT they charged, because they should not have charged it on the bill to your company. Basically they over charged your company, so you can to start with, send them an invoice with due date to refund the over charged money to your company, make sure the invoice is from your company!!!! if they do not pay, you can offer this bill for collection to a debt collector like interim justitia.. (you should get one with no cure no pay solution if those exist in Finland)
Maybe this will at least make sure the bill is open for the tax office and you can book it as a loss when not paid. (and therefore not pay income tax over the amount, even get tax back over it).
But this has been some time ago for me when I did these kind of Tax tricks so please investigate first... it might not work anymore.. (or might never have worked in Finland.. )
