P&L - Income and Cost of Sales



I am just getting started with QB and looking to just use it very simply to start with. I have entered my sales, and have entered the cost of sales.


In the P&L report the "Sales of Product Income" have VAT deducted, but "Cost of Sales" seem to be cost with VAT. So Gross Profit shows a loss.


I obviously have something wrong but I am not sure what, any help appreciated.
