Non-UK residents can register for VAT for their UK company. If you have a foreign Tax ID you must supply 3 items of documentary evidence as proof of identity. These 3 items must be:
- 1 copy of government issued photo identification, such as a passport, photo driver’s licence or national identity card, and;
- 2 copies of correspondence which includes your name and address, such as a recent utility bill (unfortunately bank statements and mobile phone bills cannot be accepted).
