I've found so much conflicting info about this on the HMRC website so hoping someone can clarify.
My client is a restaurant and has given me sales info including tips listed separately. These are optional tips not mandatory service charges. The business does not hand these tips over to the staff (bit mean) but keeps them. It's my understanding that this income is outside the scope and therefore not VATable but should they go in box 6?
Many thanks in advance.
