How do I set CIS UK reverse Charge

When you turn on the VAT in QuickBooks Online, the program automatically creates the common codes, 9826. That includes the reverse charge.


Here's how:

  1. Go to the Taxes menu and then select the VAT tab.
  2. Click on Set up VAT and then fill in the necessary fields.
  3. Then, choose the Edit VAT drop-down arrow, then select Edit rates.
  4. Click the radio button to turn the code on.


If you're unable to see the reverse charge, I suggest including the inactive ones. You can do this by clicking on the Gear icon and then place a checkmark in the Include inactive checkbox. 


For more information about VAT codes, I suggest browsing this article: Set up and Edit VAT Settings, VAT Codes, and VAT Rates.


Additionally, from April 2019, all eligible UK VAT-registered businesses will have to keep their financial records in a digital form and submit their VAT returns using approved software. To learn more details, I encourage you to browse this article: Submit a VAT Return in QuickBooks Online.

Hi tk1970, 


We'll be implementing a new VAT code in the near future to accommodate the reverse charge relating to CIS and we'll be updating all customers via email once this is released.
