Calculate net from gross

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.

    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

    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.
