Invoice numbers

I have a branch in China and I'm wondering how others doing business
in China handle the VAT invoice number. The invoices are purchased
with a pre-printed VAT number on the document and that's is what local
customers use to pay. I need to be able to tie that number into
Vantage, but still be able to create invoice for customers outside of
China.

Anyone have any suggestions??

Thanks,
