Surely we aren't the only ones that have faced this. A new customer of ours (based in the UK) is trying to set us up as a vendor and sent us a form to fill out. The assumptions on the form are that we are an EU company. (We've responded and asked for clarification and alternate process)
Should I try to figure out how to get a VAT ID (Not something I want to do) or are there other suggestions?
This was unexpected. We were dealing with people in the US (it's a pretty large global company) and in the UK and I was not expecting this kind of issue yet.
How have others dealt with this?
