Select the VAT & bank import tool link on the left hand side and click on the tick box beside the Reverse charge & EC rates toggle.



Once toggled on, you are provided with a VAT treatment drop-down on sales invoices, supplier bills and any other transaction that carries VAT.  This not only enables you to define UK VAT transactions but also the sales and purchases of goods and services to/from the EU and outside the EU.

Step 3.


Before generating any sales invoices to your EU business customers, navigate to Contacts > Customers and Edit their details to ensure that their Invoice address stipulates their country and that their Other information shows their EU VAT number.



Step 4.


Once you have generated sales the EC sales list report is accessible from Reports > All reports

The customers' sales details, for inclusion on the return, will be displayed.


Edit Goods sales to identify any Triangulated sales and, once happy with the report click on the Submit to HMRC button.
