Calculate VAT from Gross when entering Invoices Merged

It saves a lot of time if feature included otherwise one has to calculate manually. This feature is in Sage 50 and is very useful

    This is such a loss, we really need this. Please implement this, we have been asking for such a long time and you are still ���taking a look���

    Why would you have cal net button in other sage 50 products if not required. There are several things missing that have been in sage for years and years. You now have to keep looking for things that were straight to eye previously.

    Yes, I really need this, it is a big miss in Sage Accounting

    As these receipts are not invoices (they are proof you paid -not a request for payment) we wouldn't normally expect you to enter them as an invoice.

    You can enter these as "Other Payments" (or "Money Out" in Start) which will allow you to specify the Gross value and then calculate the VAT amount.

    You can also then attach a scan or photo of the receipt to the transaction to help you keep your records.

    This would be easier and a little less work!

    Thanks Tom

    But normally Petrol or B&Q receipts do not have a breakdown. They have the vat no and are genuine receipts

    Thank you for submitting your idea.

    we're still looking into this but I just wanted to make you aware of HMRC's record keeping requirements - it might be worth ensuing your suppliers are issuing valid VAT invoices.

    Thank you,
