Make Manual Corrections to VAT

You can make corrections to posted VAT entries without posting the correction into the VAT or general ledger entries. This is useful if you need to make a change to the total sales or purchases VAT amounts without changing the VAT base. For example, you can manually correct VAT if you receive an invoice from a vendor who has calculated VAT incorrectly.

To make manual corrections to VAT

  1. Choose the Search for Page or Report icon, enter VAT Statement Preview, and then choose the related link.

  2. Select the line that needs to be corrected. You can make the VAT correction on both the Row Totaling and VAT Entry Totaling row Type.
