When we sell to another company in Europe, in Xero we select the VAT category '20% Expenses Reverse Charge.  This shows as no VAT charged on the invoice but posts VAT and then takes it off again in the background (I'm sure there is a financial speak term for that process).

This then builds the figures for the VAT return.

Sage Line 50 goes one step further I believe and also has a report that shows the quarterly transactions with companies in other EU countries to support completion of a form that has to be returned showing the total value to the named company and their VAT number.

Hi Ian, there is a solution for this in Dynamics. Look at your VAT posting set up.

Sorry, this should not be in the category of Data Migrations but I cannot see how to edit it now that I've created it... opps.
