No it isn't. But VAT inspections are often event-driven. A large refund
may trigger a VAT inspection and if (say) you've never had an
inspection what better event than deregistration to trigger yours?

Why do you ask? Presumably you have cancelled, and an inspection has
been appointed, or you are about to cancel, and are wondering?

I cancelled my registration in April 2004 and have heard nothing since.

No, not at all. I'm VAT registered, but not voluntarily, so cancelling
is not an option for me :)

Its just that two people I know recently did exactly that and they
both ended up with a visit. I was just wondering whether it was policy
or not, but your experience suggests not?

Perhaps I should add that I wasnt voluntary. I sold a business which had
been registered for 17 years.

Did the new owner keep the same Vat number?
