Hello. From 1st March 2021 the domestic reverse charge VAT was applied within the Construction Industry in the UK. As a subcontractor we now have to send customer invoices whereby we do not charge VAT but instead inform the customer that they must account for the VAT. However, this only applies to certain customers where particular criteria are met. In our case approximately 20 customers out of 150 active customers. Obviously, the reverse charge feature in “Manager” covers the mechanics of this.
My problem is, when creating sales invoices, we have to remember which customers this applies to. Is there likely to be a feature in the future whereby a default VAT code could be attributed to customers? (defaulting to standard VAT but changeable to Reverse Charge when applicable.) Ideally, a flag within customer edit routine to signify Reverse charge would be best, but I realise this would be too country and industry specific. Another possibility would be if a “custom field” created within the “Customers” routine could display in the “create sales invoice” routine. Some way to deal with this situation would be much appreciated (or possibly I have missed some feature that is already present!)
I am at the minute just working from a printed list of customers but even so I have (through negligence/loss of concentration) created invoices wrongly and had them returned for correction. Add to the fact the list changes with new customers and it becomes a bit messy!
Many thanks for an otherwise excellent program.
