Generating VAT invoices for Skype

Skype, in their infinite wisdom, have decided to remove the ability to download VAT invoices – this makes it tricky for those of us who want to claim back the VAT or use our personal Skype accounts and submit monthly expense receipts to our employers to cover the cost of using this service.

Fortunately a bright spark on the Skype community forums has found a way to generate invoices by modifying one of the URL’s as follows:

  1. Log into the Skype web site and find the purchase history record you want an invoice for.
  2. At the end of the URL, add the following (excluding quotes) ‘/invoice?regenerate=true’

    Hi, The link keeps directing me to a Microsoft Office Outlook web access account sign in. I am signed into my skype account page. I’ve tried my skype & microsoft logins but neither work.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks
    Julian

    WARNING! DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINK! It is a Phishing Page, designed to steal your login information!

    Just by-the-by, it appears that this method no longer works, nor do a couple of others that had been fine until recently. It seems to be since the Microsoft takeover has become operationally effective; the timing suggests it is related to the use of longer order numbers.

    I too have found in the past this would work, unfortunately, it no longer does.
