Direct telephone number: VAT Registration helpdesk

Recently we were registering a client for VAT. Usually you get the VAT registration number in couple of days.

This time the application did not go through, but HMRC sent a clear and detailed email with the documents required.

We sent those documents but did not hear back for over a week.

I searched for a telephone number and got to the following webpage:

https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/hm-revenue-customs/contact/vat-enquiries

Now they even have a web-chat option and the web chat was very helpful and they gave me a direct number for VAT registration helpline as 0300 523 245.

Good luck !
