I'll help you make sure that the purchase is recorded accurately so you can reclaim this when filing your VAT Return, jo59.
First, you need to set up the Flat Rate Scheme in your account. Here's how:
Go to the Taxes menu and select VAT.
Click Set up VAT.
Enter all required details.
Check the box for Flat Rate Scheme (FRS).
Enter a rate and Tax Registration date.
Click Next, then click OK.
Second, you will see a check box for VAT Reclaimable when creating a bill or expense transaction to record the capital purchase. The reclaimed amount will be reported automatically in Box 4 of your VAT Detail Report.
