I'm here to provide info so you can use the 5% VAT code in QuickBooks Online (QBO). When making sales transactions in QBO, you can use the 5.0% VAT code under the VAT column. To do so, please refer to these steps:
Go to the +New menu and choose a transaction you need to record. For example, Invoice.
Select the items underthe Product/Service column.
Enter the amount and choose 5.0% VAT under the VAT column.
Once done, click Save and close.
However, if you don't have a 5.0 % VAT code, I recommend consulting your accountant to help you create one. If you're not affiliated with one, use our Find an Accountant tool.
