How do I record exceptional VAT amount in expenses?

How do I record an  exceptional VAT amount, which is not within the standard %, but rather a nominal amount:   for example I have a VAT import from FedEx as follows:  admin. Fee is £12, Duty £33.18 and the VAT amount is £275.91

I am unable to enter the VAT amount manually, can you please instruct me how to do it?

Re: How do I record exceptional VAT amount in expenses?

Thank you  very much for your guidance, I managed to record it as you advised, however, can you confirm that the actual amount of VAST paid (£275.91)  will appear in my VAT report as the VAT expense?    

Also, I usually record invoices via : Suppliers> Bills… ; is there any reason why this is not recorded via Bills?

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Hi love hate,

 

I love your username.

 

The VAT paid (£275.91) will appear on your VAT report in box 4: VAT Reclaimed on purchases. You can check it by going to Taxes and running the return of the tax period.

 

 

About your second question, you can record your transaction as a bill instead of an expense. I think Kristine was using expense because it was mentioned on your original post.
