While there now is an automatic link from the suppliers VAT regime to the VAT regime when entering a new invoice for the same supplier, there should in my opinion also be an automatic link from the VAT regime to the VAT class in the row where you enter the numbers. I wonder if there is in fact any reason for having both a “VAT regime” and a “VAT class”. Wouldn’t it just be simpler to have one set of categories ?
Although I can use the VAT class “exempt from VAT” for intra-EU invoices it is not quite correct. In order to get the declarations correct there should be a separate VAT class for the reverse charge or are the declarations based on the VAT regime chosen ? Even if it is so, the term “Exempt from VAT” for reverse charge intra-community VAT is incorrect and would confuse accountants.
I just tried to look at the VAT declaration page which seems quite incomprehensible to me. I tried to look at 2018 in full after having entered data for Zone OÜ which has 2 invoices with VAT, but no numbers showed up, only an error message “Ajax communication failed”.
There should be possibility and documentation about how to set up new categories and define the rate and debit and credit accounts in addition to the standard set-up.
This took (several days of work) and caused the changes described in Tuesday, April 9, 2019.
