The reason that it will have started appearing all of a sudden is due to the introduction of VAT MOSS legislation that requires the country of residence for a customer be defined for VAT reporting purposes. When creating an audit trail or providing records it is essential that the country does appear on a customer record and in most cases, upon an individual record raised.
However, I appreciate this isn't ideal for all so I will speak to the development team and see if we can make a change here.
Hi, I just think that if you only do business within the UK, having the country printed out on invoices, etc seems unnecessary. When I was using the trial version this didn't seem to happen but once I updated all of a sudden "United Kingdom" started appearing after my own address and the customer's address. The way to get around this happening has been explained to me but surely it would be a lot easier for there to be a simple "tick box" option to take this off.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
