GL accounts and VAT

I have set a number of expense type accounts with a VAT posting group, as I may be posting expense type invoices direct to these accounts. Having done this I find if I want to journal an amount between accounts for allocation purposes, the journal picks up and creates a VAT entry, which I obviously don’t want. Is there an easy way to switch on and off the VAT when I want to make non VAT related postings?

Hi John,

Look up the help on VAT Bus. Posting Group and VAT Prod. Posting Group in general journals

On the “General Journal Template” uncheck the “Copy VAT Setup to Jnl. Lines” flag
