Should a ECS20 purchase VAT code update purchase details in boxes 2 and 7?

Hello there, katie-houghton,

 

I'm here to provide how sales tax is reported on your VAT returns.

 

The ECS VAT code will +/- VAT at 20% to box 1 and  4+/- net purchase to box 6 & 7. You can use this page: Common VAT Codes. It provides a complete list of VAT codes and rates and how they affect your returns.

 

I've added these handy related articles for additional information:

Should you need anything else, let me know by commenting below. Just tag my name and I'm glad to help.

Hi @katie-houghton 

Box 2 is for Acquisitions (i.e. Goods) - so is not affected by ECS (Services) VAT code.

 

Hope this helps.
