I think I terminated the service around October 2021. But I need the rest of the bills so I can claim the cost on my business tax return. How can I get older bills? I logged in and can only get bills from 12 months ago from today.

An assertion the basis of which is roundly contradicted by the subsequent
To get a VAT invoice, you’ll need to contact BT.
If BT Now users can get a VAT invoice and reclaim VAT, then direct Now users should be able to do the same, and so Now’s excuse is remarkably weak.
And not even true:-
Mind you, you might have your work cut out relating your usage of Now to any business purpose you might have without falling foul of any rules prohibiting business use in Now’s T&Cs 😛
My understanding is that that is for the tv service, resold through BT, and not the broadband service as BT don't resell Now broadband.
As stated you can't claim vat back on the broadband service, as it's domestic access not for business use. the only proof of purchase available will be on your credit card statement
You are quite right that BT don’t resell Now Broadband.
But the paradox here is that if anyone could make a case for reclaiming VAT on Now streaming services resold by BT - a rather harder task, I think, than trying to make a case for reclaiming the VAT on Broadband services - then so could anyone make such a case for reclaiming the VAT on directly sold Now streaming services.
And even more so for their Broadband services.
HMRC, by the way, do not concern themselves with what things are sold as - only with how they are used, and that that is a relevant business purpose for the claimant. Otherwise, toy retailers would be in difficulty here 😛
As an IT contractor, I claimed for the VAT on my domestic BT Broadband and telephone for years (technically, pro rata the business use versus the home use), but never for Netflix, as only a job which involved me watching Netflix would make the VAT reclaimable, and I was never able to get one of those 😢
