Turn off VAT Field

Hi mcgmkpuki.

Thank you for contacting Community.

While VAT, once turned on in the product, cannot be completely turned off, it can still be removed from showing on the transaction pages and can be removed from appearing as a field in invoices, bills, expenses etc...

To do this, on the transaction page when you are creating the transaction there will be an option on the right hand side that says 'Amounts are...' with a drop down box. Here you will have the option to select 'Inclusive of VAT', 'Exclusive of VAT' or 'NO VAT'. If you select NO VAT then the entire column on the transaction box will be removed and will not appear anywhere on the transaction when saved or messaged to your customers. If NO VAT is selected then no VAT will be recorded at all and this will not count toward your VAT returns that are filed through QuickBooks.

Let me know if you have any queries. Or, if you'd like to go through this over the phone, you can call our dedicated team who will be happy to assist you. Our contact details can be found here along with our opening hours.
