I am unable to raise an invoice to a UK client for VAT only amount in sterling pound. The amount is auto zeroed if there is no amount in unit cost column. This is ok to auto compute, but it should be able to be overwritten, but it doesn’t seem to do so now right now.
I do this all the time for purchase invoices where VAT amount can be put even if the unit cost is zero. Generally this is done for two reasons in my case - when imports are made & courier company like FedEX pays VAT on our behalf therefore they invoice for VAT only amounts… I can reclaim this amount as VAT only purchases (nil for purchases - that is dealt with a separate purchase raised from supplier). Another case when this happens is when a UK supplier invoices in US dollar for purchases & invoices VAT amount separately on another invoice raised in Sterling. This works very well as two separate invoices in different currencies one without any VAT & second without any unit cost amounts. In VAT returns they figures also sit in correct columns & everything works well.
However I am now in a situation where we supply a product in US dollars to a UK company & need to do same thing - raise an invoice without VAT in USD - so far so good on QF. But when it comes to raising only VAT invoice, I am unable to do so.
Can someone at QF please look into this & possibly unlock this function. If on the purchase its possible then it should be possible to do on sales/invoice side too. Or if there is a work around the please let me know. Just for reference I do want to have two separate invoices in different currencies for a UK Vat registered client.
