Vat Missing on profit loss

Hi When creating a purchase + Vat etc £59 +vat chart of accounts only shows purchase £59

vat bit should be in input vat account , only net purchases should go into nominal a/c

VAT is an asset or liability so won’t show on a P&L. It will appear instead on the balance sheet.

iam not vat registered, so should i input purchase inclusive of vat or show plus vat

In that case enter all amounts as gross (£70.80 to use your example) and set VAT rate to zero. Don’t record VAT if you’re not VAT registered as it will mess up your P&L.

If you have VAT disabled in Company Settings is should hide all the VAT columns and always default to zero %.
