What is the best way to enter in a form C79 from HMRC? Is there a way we can create a new VAT code to deal with this, or do we have to gross up the VAT figure?

What is the best way to enter in a form C79 from HMRC? Is there a way we can create a new VAT code to deal with this, or do we have to gross up the VAT figure?

Hi tracy-lee.

I haven't had one in a while but a C79 is effectively a receipt from HMRC for VAT paid on an import.

(nothing to do with payroll)

 

If you've paid the VAT to an intermediary, the VAT should be shown on their invoice together with other charges (import clearance, etc).  In which case, keep the C79 together with that invoice but use the intermediary invoice for entering into QB.

 

If you've paid direct to HMRC, treat the C79 as an invoice from HMRC but with zero subtotal & 100% VAT.

 

There are a few threads about posting 100% invoices.

In no particular order (& I haven't read thoroughly, so the approach might be slightly different in each case - but adopt/adapt/improve your favourite)...

Hello Tracy-Lee

 

Just to confirm are you referring to the C79 for imports for VAT or to the C79 form for a child arrangements order?

Hello Paul72

 

There is a form C79 which is a child arrangement order as well as the C79 which relates to imports, we appreciate you flagging this up as yes it is more likely it is the latter from the question asked.

Hi Emma, it was the VAT form I was enquiring about. Many thanks for trying to help though.
