I've been running my own company (and own books) for 12 years - and it
gives no issues AFAIK (my accountant is happy as well :)

All we use in Denmark, is the invoice date - whenever the invoice was
actually created is not taken into account or saved anywhere (only
requirement is on the numbering scheme used).

So VAT is paid, dependant on the invoice date. ie. if a AR invoice is
dated in january - then I pay the VAT for that in the VAT period in
which january resides (dependant on revenue companies report VAT
monthly, quarterly or semi-annually) - no matter when I actually get
paid - that has no influence on when I pay the VAT for the invoice.

If I can't get the payment for the invoice - then I'll have to issue a
credit-invoice - which will mean a deduction in my VAT reporting for the
period in which I do the credit-invoice.

I hope this helps to explain the way it works here (and as I believe in
the other scandinavian countries as well).
