BTW Netherlands

Hello, I noticed there are some dutch people in here, I hope you can help me. I have been playing around with Manager for a while, and I am running into something I don’t quite understand; it seems the program assumes that all I need to do is keep a running total of received and paid BTW, so all that is needed is one single account. Thing is of course that we have to register these two separately, how did you solve this? All I have been able to think of sofar is define separate tax codes for BTW received, and BTW paid, and have those point to seperate BTW accounts.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.



Hi Jeroen,

If i understand correctly: You want the BTW set for specific items?

I think it would be easiest if you set your BTW in your “rekening schema” chart of accounts. Usually it would calculate it in the “concept BTW aangifte” (which can be downloaded at the main manager IO site)

unless I’m forgetting something…

Well, if I understand correctly, the BTW on my purchases (‘te vorderen BTW’) and the BTW on my sales (‘af te dragen BTW’) is put into the same account, which leaves me with just a balance of the two. Normally I would have these two in their separate accounts, yes?

Do you have the Dutch BTW rates installed? If not, here’s the link:

Line 56 (5b) in the Concept BTW Aangifte is not correct but you can change it yourself: Concept BTW rapport (Dutch VAT report)

Manager uses just one VAT-account. All transactions allocated to this account will be shown in the built-in reports. Don’t add codes yourself.
If you create new VAT-accounts, these accounts will not appear in the report BTW-concept aangifte.
You have to download the localization-file from the Manager website. Once downloaded go to Settings (Instellingen) click on Importeren and navigate to the file you just downloaded and install this file. Next step is click on Btw-tarieven in the Instellingen menu. For BTW 21% and BTW 9% click on Bewerken and at Rekening select Af te dragen BTW. When you do this Manager will allocate all transactions to the proper account. As said, only the built-in Btw-tarieven will show up in the concept-BTW-aangifte. Tarieven you create yourself don’t show up.
In case you encounter problems, you can send me a private message and I can be of further assistance

@ J-curve
See my reply to your question.

@ Mark
Please don’t confuse new users of Manager with something which is a point of discussion on this forum. Manager calculates the VAT in a correct way when you use the built-in VAT-codes. The discussion is one of how the figures are presented not whether the concept-btw-aangifte is correct.

yes, I have

Thanks for your reply, I’m going to see if I can make it work
