Why is VAT code ECG (20%) not filling out correct boxes on my VAT return (I'm on flat rate)?
Hello, VAT on EU acquisitions should post to box 2. I've been told in a chat since I posted this that Quickbooks is not capable of doing this. HMRC have told me that Quickbooks must correct this for me but I'm not having any joy. In the meantime I cannot do my VAT return as required.
Thank you for your prompt reply. I'll take care of your query about the 20.0% ECG VAT code in QuickBooks Online (QBO).
I've taken steps to replicate your situation in my test account and found the VAT code stated above posts to Box 2. The net amount posts to Boxes 7 and 9. I suggest checking your expense transactions and ensure the correct VAT code is used. Another thing, please check that the VAT code you're using is the default 20.0% ECG and not a custom one. This is so you can be sure that it posts to the correct Boxes.
