Hi VJK

 

You do not have to create the customer selecting 'this customer pays me with' euros for the amount to show in box 6, you can raise an invoice in GBP. The main factor is that you choose a EC VAT code and that you enter a country within the customers details/address field, the transaction will then also populate withn the VAT 101 report/EC sales list.

Hi John 

 

Thank you.  Have have just tested what happens when I pay the invoice.  I see it then enters it in box 6 which is correct.  When you say the transaction will also populate within the VAT101 report/EC sales list does this mean I do not have to complete the online form then?  Will the QuickBooks program automatically submit it when I make the next return?  They are signed up for MTD.

Thank you for getting back to us here on the Community page, @VJK.

 

If the posting of your transactions is correct, then you can use QuickBooks to submit your VAT return automatically and there's no need for you to fill out the online form. 

 

For you to identify the correct VAT codes to use and which box it'll be posted on your VAT return, read this article: Common VAT Codes.
