Sage introduced a new automated tax coding for EU/non-EU purchases which it recognises the correct tax code to use based on the location the supplier has been entered as in the supplier setup. Sage now has an expanded set of tax codes including multiple codes for EU/non-EU purchases including numerous exempt and reverse charge codes. When publishing an invoice from AutoEntry to a foreign supplier where a standard UK or I tax code is used the following error will show beside the invoice:
If you are unsure of the tax code to use the best way is to enter the a dummy invoice for the same supplier into Sage and Sage will determine the correct code to use. You can then use this code in AutoEntry to publish the invoice through. AutoEntry does not have the ability to filter the codes based on a supplier so will continue to display all codes available in AutoEntry. One the correct code is entered through, you can still remember that code for the supplier and it will be automatically filled in going forward*.
To reduce the list of codes in the drop-down menu in AutoEntry to make future selections easier, you can go to the Manage Lists page and under the VAT Codes tab, hide the codes you do not need by turning off the Visibility:
*If you have already remembered a VAT code for a particular supplier with the incorrect VAT code, simply go to the supplier settings for that supplier and at the bottom of the page, delete the incorrect Category/Vat code defaults by clicking on the 'x' to the right of the line and saving the changes.
