VTT+ - VAT only credit note


This is my first post on Accountingweb but I have found reading the posts interesting, helpful and at times most amusing. 


Does anyone know how to create a VAT only credit note in VTT+?  This would be to correct a previous invoice which has been raised (and payment received) but the VAT was incorrectly applied at 20% for a supply of service during 2010 not invoiced until 2011.  Or would it be better to credit the whole invoice and re-invoice at the correct VAT rate?


Many thanks

Better to credit the whole thing and re-invoice.  For one thing if you were to get inspected in x years time, it would be clear to all exactly what had happened.

Yes, I thought that would be the better approach, but still curious if a VAT only Credit note is possible.  Probably not if it is not really the best way of doing things.


Many thanks for your response.

Create the credit note using the SCR that isn't underlined. Put the full value in both the total and VAT blocks. The balance of £0 is then allocated to (eg) Income|Fees. You now have a VAT-only credit note, but the box 6 value on the VAT return (total value of goods sold) will be wrong.

To fix that, edit the transaction. Add an additional line for Income|Fees but uncheck the 'subject to VAT' box. If the goods value should be (say) £1,000, enter that value in the normal (subject to VAT) line for Income|Fees, with an offset against the new line for Income|Fees not subject to VAT.

Job done.

Where this kind of messing around does get used more is when you get VAT-only invoices when importing goods. The solution is similar to the above, but obviously applied to purchase invoices.
