I'd like to enter gross (tax inclusive) values, and have Accounting work out the net value automatically, in invoicing and quick entries. Sage 50 has this feature when posting in the sales and purchase ledger.
I migrated from Freshbooks, even they had this functionality. It's irritating not to be able to do this!
Great Idea Currently In The Works - Since 2019!
How is this not a thing Yet?!
This is a great idea it should have already been included as it is in Line 50, a backward step that its not.
PLEASE!!!! Hurry up with this.
Unacceptable that this feature is still not implemented. This is rock-bottom basic for every other platform.
This is already done in Quick Entries, please add to Supplier invoices
How has this not been sorted yet?
3 years later and we are still waiting for this...
Disappointing to read comments are going back over a year and a half! Which means Sage arent really going to provide this for us users!!! Im new to cloud and Im used to working with Sage desktop. Providing a "calc net" (originally F9) option is very important.
Great idea. It would also be useful if there was a custom calculation for mileage expenses to split out the VAT and non-VAT elements.
I've just migrated over from Sage50 and this might just be the single most frustrating thing that will make me NOT continue to use cloud accounting. Having looked at all the comments which go back a couple of years...how is it still not possible?
Really miss this feature
Surely this is a simple fix ? I have used Sage accounts happily for years. I moved to cloud due to MTD legislation more than a year and a half ago and found this to be a problem , IT IS STILL NOT FIXED!!
calculate net button was a great function in sage 50 that is needed in 50c. There are work around as the comments below which do work but they are a major "faff"
Miss this feature so bad
Calculate net feature is needed ASAP
Oh no! We've just recently changed from SAP to Sage Business Cloud Accounting. There was a feature in the settings on SAP that allowed you to choose whether you wanted to input transactions Gross to Net or Net to Gross. I'm concerned that this was first muted in June 2021 and yet this feature has not yet been added a year later. It is so time consuming having to calculate the net on an invoice where the breakdown isn't available on the invoice/document received. Please please please change this and let us know a) if you will be changing it b) a timeframe we can expect a change to take place as I can see this becoming very frustrating. We have only started using this product. I have only migrated some of our clients over at the minute but this is something that would really grate on me so much that it would put me off using the software completely and not migrate the rest of our clients. Please give some feedback on this at your earliest convenience. Thank you.
should I enter net or gross figures in sage
yes this is definitely needed, commonly available in quickbooks and big red cloud. should be an easy fix
This can be done but only when processing Other Payments or Receipts in Sage Business Cloud Accounting - not for Invoices
Simply select your VAT rate and then pop your total on the line and the net and VAT amounts will be calculated.
Just be sure to also pop the total transaction value in the top right of your transaction window or you will be unable to save it.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
