SOLIHULL-based MEP Malcolm Harbour is warning firms of a new scam that’s hitting British companies.

He said: “Some West Midlands businesses have received an official looking letter from a German company asking for a form to be completed to include their VAT registration number. The pretext of the request suggests that this is due to new EU legislation, but this is a scam. If business owners complete the form, they will be liable for £797 per year for a minimum of three years.
