This article will go through what you need to be aware of, and what to do if your business makes such supplies.
AccountsPrep integrated companies in the Irish Tourism & Hospitality sectors that are VAT registered.
As this reduced rate is temporary and not applicable to all transactions, we recommend the use of a new custom VAT code, to be applied as appropriate. This will make it simpler to identify transactions you're entering during this temporary reduced VAT rate period for reconciliation and anlysis purposes.
All Irish AccountsPrep templates have a 9% tax code included, so companies set up with an Irish template do not need to do anything.
If your company is not using an Irish template, you may need to create a new tax code yourself by going to Settings > Tax Codes and Add Tax Code.
If you also use AccountsPrep's Default Tax Codes per Nominal Account feature, you may also want to review and update these settings.
