QuickBooks Online (QBO) automatically creates a list of VAT codes once you set up VAT. You may visit the Common VAT Codes page to know more about the different VAT code/rate, the description of each code, and codes use for sales and purchase forms.
Also, transactions appear in boxes 1 and 6 is depending on the code assigned. For further info, please see the How does this report on my VAT 100 return? column of this article: UK VAT Codes.
To guide you in selecting the correct codes to ensure the accuracy of your VAT report, I suggest consulting your accountant for guidance. If you don't have one, you can use our Find an Accountant tool to find accounting professionals:
You will find that the supplier bills that appear on your VAT Boxes 1 and 6 have one of the EC codes for services rendered from EU countries (zero or 20%) or Reverse Charge (RC). They should also appear on Boxes 4 and 7 to contra out.
If the business have actually bought physical goods from the EU, then the correct VAT codes are 20%ECG or 0%ECG depending on the category of goods. In which case, they will show up on Boxes 2, 4, 7 and 9.
I have not seen the exact EC VAT codes you described, but I can figure out; for example "ECPSZR" is EC purchase of services 0%. Will need to know the nature of goods or services the business has bought to pick the right code.
