VAT randomly does not show on Invoices at times

So my customer details and template is set up to show the customer's vat number, however, sometimes, at random, the vat number is not there. This does not happen with a specific customer, but with all. I have resorted to e-mailing the invoices to myself, from Quickbooks and then, sometimes the vat number shows, whereas it did not when downloading the invoice from Quickbooks. 

Today when I tried the same workaround, it still did not show the vat number after e-mailing it to myself. I then contacted the customer in question and they informed me that the vat number was showing correctly on the invoice they received. 

This is clearly an issue with the software, can anyone shed some light please?

Attached is a screenshot of the same Invoice side by side, both sent from quickbooks by e-mail, with no changes made by me to any settings.

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
