VAT declaration (France)

This article describes how to set up and generate a report for France that can be used to report a value-added tax (VAT) declaration in the www.impots.gouv.fr online portal by using the exchange of computerized forms (EFI) channel.

To automatically generate the report, you must first create enough sales tax codes to keep a separate VAT accounting for each box on the VAT declaration. Additionally, in the application-specific parameters of the Electronic reporting (ER) format for the VAT declaration, you must associate sales tax codes with the result of the lookups for the VAT declaration boxes.

For France, you must configure three lookups:

  • Operation lookup
  • Report field lookup
  • Monaco lookup

For more information about how to set up application-specific parameters, see the Set up application-specific parameters for VAT declaration fields section later in this article.

In the following tables, the Lookup result column shows the lookup result that is preconfigured for a specific VAT declaration row in the VAT declaration format. Use this information to correctly associate sales tax codes with the lookup result and then with the row of the VAT declaration.

Note about purchase reverse charge VAT

If you configure sales tax codes to post incoming reverse charge VAT by using use tax, associate your sales tax codes with the lookup result of the Report field lookup that contains "UseTax" in the name.

Alternatively, you can configure two separate sales tax codes: one for VAT due and one for VAT deduction. Then associate each code with the appropriate lookup report of the Report field lookup.

Example

For a taxable purchase of electricity, gas, heat, or cold that has a domestic reverse charge, you configure sales tax code UT_S_RC with use tax. You then associate the code with the UseTaxTaxableElectricityGasHeatCold lookup result of the Operation lookup and the UseTaxFranceStandard lookup result of the Report field lookup. In this case, amounts that use the UT_S_RC sales tax code will be reflected on line 3A (via the Operation lookup), and on lines 08 and 20 (using the Report field lookup).

Alternatively, you configure two sales tax codes:

  • VAT_S_RC, which has a tax rate value of -20 percent
  • InVAT_S_RC, which has a tax rate value of 20 percent

You then associate the codes with lookup results in the following way:

  • Associate VAT_S_RC with the TaxableElectricityGasHeatCold lookup result of the Operation lookup and the VATDueFranceStandard lookup result of the Report field lookup.
  • Associate InVAT_S_RC with the VATDeductionOtherGoodsServices lookup result of the Report field lookup.

In this case, amounts that use the VAT_S_RC sales tax code will be reflected on lines 3A (via the Operation lookup) and 08 (via the Report field lookup). Amounts that use the InVAT_S_RC sales tax code will be reflected on line 20 (via the Report field lookup).

For more information about how to configure reverse charge VAT, see Reverse charges.

Set up a VAT declaration preview for France

Import ER configurations

  1. Open the Electronic reporting workspace.

  2. Import the following version or later of this ER format:

    • VAT Declaration Excel (FR) version 85.15

Set up application-specific parameters for VAT declaration fields

To automatically generate a VAT declaration preview report in Microsoft Excel, associate sales tax codes in the application and lookup results in the ER configuration.

Note

We recommend that you enable the feature, Use application specific parameters from previous versions of ER formats in the Feature management workspace. When this feature is enabled, parameters that are configured for the earlier version of an ER format automatically become applicable for the later version of the same format. If this feature is not enabled, you must configure application-specific parameters explicitly for each format version. The Use application specific parameters from previous versions of ER formats feature is available in the Feature management workspace starting in Finance version 10.0.23. For more information about how to set up the parameters of an ER format for each legal entity, see Set up the parameters of an ER format per legal entity.

Set up operations

Follow these steps to define which sales tax codes generate which boxes in section A, "AMOUNT OF OPERATIONS CARRIED OUT."

  1. Go to Workspaces > Electronic reporting, and select Reporting configurations.

  2. Select the VAT declaration Excel (FR) configuration, and then select Configurations > Application specific parameters setup to open the Application specific parameters page.

  3. On the Application specific parameters page, on the Lookups FastTab, select Operation lookup.

  4. On the Conditions FastTab, set the following fields to associate the sales tax codes and operations.

    Field Description
    Lookup result Select the operation to set up. For more information about the operations and their assignment to VAT declaration rows, see the VAT declaration preview overview section earlier in this article.
    Tax code Select the sales tax code to associate with the operation. Posted tax transactions that use the selected sales tax code will be collected in the appropriate declaration box. We recommend that you separate sales tax codes in such a way that one sales tax code generates amounts in only one declaration box.
    Transaction classifier

    If you created enough sales tax codes to determine a declaration box, select *Not blank*. If you didn't create enough sales tax codes so that one sales tax code generates amounts in only one declaration box, set up a transaction classifier. The following transaction classifiers are available:

    • Purchase
    • PurchaseExempt (tax-exempt purchase)
    • PurchaseReverseCharge (tax receivable from a purchase reverse charge)
    • Sales
    • SalesExempt (tax-exempt sale)
    • SalesReverseCharge (tax payable from a purchase reverse charge or a sales reverse charge)
    • Use tax

    For each transaction classifier, a classifier for the credit note is also available. For example, one of these classifiers is PurchaseCreditNote (purchase credit note).

    Note

    Be sure to associate all sales tax codes with lookup results. If any sales tax codes should not generate values in section A, associate them with the Other lookup result.

    Application parameters operations.

Set up report fields

Follow these steps to define which sales tax codes generate which boxes in section B, "VAT CALCULATION TO BE PAID."

  1. On the Application specific parameters page, on the Lookups FastTab, select Report field lookup.
