Not VAT Registered - Adding VAT charged onto purchase invoice

Hi guys, new on here, and new to accounting. When adding a new purchase am I correct in believing that I simply add the total amount charged and don’t have to worry about the invoicer’s VAT charged to me? Does that sound gibberish LOL? What I’m trying to ask, is do I not need to worry about adding VAT (I’m not VAT registered) and simply need to put the total amount charged. Many thanks.

Hi there,

As you’re not VAT registered, you enter the gross value (which is the total WITH VAT).

So, for example, if you had an item that was £4.00 + £0.80 VAT, you would simply enter it as £4.80.

Hope that helps
