Dear Lupus Europe Partners and Sponsors,
While we will meet some of you soon, at the LUPUS EUROPE convention end of this month, I am getting to you ahead of time so that you can forward this message to the appropriate persons in your organisation, if needed. This is also an opportunity to update our contacts database, so if you could check and update your information here , it would be great!
Due to the growth of our activities, and the inclusion on some of our contractual frameworks of the access to the patient advisory network as a benefit to our sponsors, we have reached last month the threshold requiring LUPUS EUROPE to be registered for VAT in the UK. We have promptly worked the issue with HMRC, and have just been allocated a VAT number which is GB 334 4425 18.
Obviously, the actual application of VAT on invoices will depend on the contractual agreement, but even if this possibly does not change anything in your specific case, it is likely that your accounts payables department will ask our “supplier profile” to be updated. This is why I am reaching out to you, so that you can forward this information to the appropriate person, or guide us to the right service to have our records updated in your systems.
Please let me know if there is something I can do to make this process as smooth as possible.
Thank you for your support
