VAT on invoices from EU

I'm really confused about the VAT codes I need to use when posting invoices from EU suppliers.

I know I should use 20%ECG or 20%ECS  for an invoice that has VAT on it,  but we receive invoices for goods from a supplier in Italy,  who is VAT registered,  but his invoices don't show a VAT element at all.  I don't know if the items he supplies don't attract VAT in Italy or what.

I need to know -  should I use 0%ECG in this case,  or no vat (or something different entirely)?

Hi Angiebaby,

 

Welcome to the UK Community Page for QuickBooks Online. Whenever you're deciding what VAT Code to use you're best speaking to HMRC or your Accountant.

 

You're along the right lines as to using the ECG Or ECS Codes, but when you don't have a VAT Code to go off of, i'm not the person of Authority to tell you what to do.

 

HMRC is probably going to be the best bet for which code to use.

 

Thanks,
