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.
The sooner the better, its a shame this was not considered when the software was upgraded previously.
Great idea and will speed things up.
Having migrated from Sage 50 I am bewildered why something as basic as calculating the net amount from the gross is not a function! A huge step backwards in my opinion! Having to manually calculate this before I can do entries is very time consuming and not at all what I expected to have to do when I thought I was updating my Sage package. Please look to resolve this.
Being a retail company our prices are always displayed as gross and it's a massive issue for a small business like us to have to manually calculate this on all invoices. We have used Sage for years and have always had this facility. Why has this option now been taken away - doesn't make sense at all. Also need calculate net on banking (other payments). Please let us have this feature back as a matter of urgency.
Yes id like this too, I have to do the calc when I pay for software to do to for me.
I cannot believe this is not a function in sageone. Sage tell me that people don't enter the invoices like this. I pointed out that most retail business work out the sales this way.
Really need the Calc nett - T9 button back!
Please please please make this happen. Does it really take 18 months+ to take a look at it?
We are in retail. Every day I create a sales invoice to "Daily over the counter sales" for my total sales for the day. Every day I have to calculate myself the net figure for my gross sales so I can enter the net figure into sage for it to magically calculate the vat and automatically enter the gross figure that I already knew.
Such a waste of time every day for something that must be so easy to change from your end.
I would like to see this facility.. I have recently moved to Sage One having worked with Sage Line 50 for over 25 years.. Like other comments its a small issue but really useful
This is a small issue, however it would be very useful for this function.
Just moved today. Horrified there is no calculate net facility on the sales invoice, increase in workload or reams and reams of paper for each invoice
Need to have a net button
I have just moved to Cloud having used Sage 50. I am staggered that the calculate net facility is not included as an essential tool on the Cloud. Swapping to Cloud is going to massively increased my workload. You can do it in a fashion via the banking/purchase invoice/other payment route but you sacrifice recording the date of the invoice, which is less than ideal.
Why has this function not been migrated from Sage 50 to cloud system? I need to enter gross figures from a lot of our suppliers and am no longer able to. This is a step back not forward. Please add this the next update.
Feedback from John:
'I am in the hospitality industry and all our income is gross but I cannot enter a gross figure and get your system to calculate the VAT and Net sum. It appears to allow a net sum to be entered so I am having to do the work myself.
Yes, I agree, I have just moved to cloud and this is causing me a lot of extra work that I didnt have with my previous Sage accounts. Not an improvement!
Yes this is a substantial administrative burden right now. We recently moved from Xero to sage and this issue is a huge step down in convenience. We were previously able to select Tax Inclusive and switch between VAT rates without affecting the total value of the item. Without this function we have to manually calculate the pre tax amount. I see this issue was raised in 2019 but should really be integrated at this point. The current functionality of sage is not suited for business to customer trading for this reason alone. If sage wants to compete with Xero on business to customer platforms this needs to be rectified.
Yes, i would love to see this feature as well
Yes, this is something I really miss after moving from Sage Line 50 to Sage Accountig
