If I'm a middleman, do I have to provide proof to the manufacturer I'm supplying a vat exempt company?  How would I do this if I want to keep both parties anonymous to each other.

I'm recently VAT registered and my head is hurting.

Depends what the products are eg insurance....please see  https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals/vat-taxable-person/vtaxper36820

A pure agent/principal relationship should be established and invoice should ideally identify the ultimate beneficiary. That way you only pay VAT on your commission (if applicable).

i would get a VAT expert to look at the agreements/invoices etc if the amount involved in large enough.
