Vat Rate Change

If you are selling goods at 21% you will need to make the following changes to charge vat at 23% from 1st of January.

Please follow these steps to update your system for Vat at 23%.

This update is intended for customers using Sage. This should be updated after your last sync for the current week. As you will not want to send the new code down until after the 1st January.

Once you start making the changes to products and the price matrix these changes will be loaded to the handheld the next time you sync , so the timing is important as you don’t want these new changes downloaded until the Monday sales cycle.

For Intact Customers please ensure you have run the utility from Intact to update your vat settings

5. You will also need to change your vat analysis codes for your EDI, When you have sent your last EDI files for December please change the vat setting. Click System, Program Preferences and select the Vat tab – change the “21 Vat ” code to be the correct vat code.

If you have a large number of products we can connect to your PC and change you vat codes, before you call please have step 1 and 2 completed and advise us what the old code and the new code should be.

If you have priced dockets you will need a handheld upgrade to ensure the vat analysis is correct on a priced docket.
