VAT form C79

VAT form C79

A client who export and import goods have received this. I assume the value on the form are included in the input tax. C&E said this is the only entry to make but from the dim & distant I seem to remember doing something else?
Do you have to gross up for the inputs box?
How are the values arrived at?

Any other advice?

In theory, correct.
The theory is that if you have incurred import VAT on an item you will also have received a purchase invoice from the overseas supplier that does not include VAT. That purchase invoice should be included in Box 7 of the return ensuring the balance between net purchase and VAT is maintained.

In the absence of a purchase invoice, it is probably best to simply gross up the import VAT claimed as you are required to account for imports in Box 7 of the return.
