Hi kritsana2712,


Thank you for your query!

Recording a 100% VAT expense can be a bit tricky in QuickBooks, but don't worry, we have a a step-by-step guide on how to record it.

Please follow these steps:

1, Click on the + sign and choose Expense

2, Either choose a payee or leave that box empty

3, On the first line of the expense choose any of your Expense accounts

4, For the amount enter a pound (1) and choose 20% S as your VAT code

5, On the second line choose the same expense account

6, For the amount, enter minus a pound (-1) and choose No VAT as a VAT code

7, The total of the expense will show as 0

8, Under the Subtotal box the VAT box become editable

9, Enter the desired VAT amount into the VAT box and save the expense

10, This will create a 100% VAT transaction


This transaction will show in Box 4 on your VAT returns.
