Sage 200 Vat Codes for EC purchases

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

With MTD upon us I am trying to make my Sage 200 VAT Return correct so that no manual adjustments need to be made. At the moment EC purchases are classed with a T8 code and 0%. This makes box 9 correct but not boxes 2,3 or 4, which was fine before as they were fixed before procesing the VAT Return.  When I change the rate to 20%, all the VAT Return boxes are correct but it adds 20% VAT to my invoice, which obviously is not correct.

What am I missing?  Is there a checkbox that I have not ticked?  Sage 50 allows me to add the 20% to the VAT Return and not the invoice.  How do I make Sage 200 correct?

If you mean reverse charge VAT purchases, then when setting up the VAT rate choose "reverse charge purchases" from the EC terms dropdown and set the VAT rate to 20%. If you mean purchases of goods from other EC countries, then choose "purchases goods & related services" from the EC terms dropdown and set the VAT rate to 0%.

Just to note that if you enter a purchase invoice and set the VAT rate to one that is for reverse charge purchases, then Sage will show the additional 20% in the gross value of the invoice - despite this the net amount will be posted to purchase ledger.
