Logging purchases and VAT


We make a lot of purchases (VAT and using a credit card. These are all logged on Dashboard > Credit card.
Do I also have to enter each purchase at Dashboard > Log a purchase? I am also wondering whether when I go MTD, i.e. VAT that I am doing the right things to ensure the figures will be accurate


Each purchase needs to be recorded as a purchase invoice but there’s several ways to go about it. If you’re starting from a bank statement view (such as the credit card account) then when you tag something as “payment to a supplier” there’s the option to create the purchase record at the point of tagging. Alternatively you can create purchases by hand or through the receipt hub when you upload scanned or email receipts, then just use the bank tagging to assign payments to the existing purchases.


Thanks for this, but has been helpful.
