Hi I set the vat on as start of feb to 20% (see attached pic) however when i make an invoice inc vat is not coming up at 20%?

20% of £212 is 42.40 not 35.33 - can you tell me how to make this correct, would be much appreciated?

Thank you

    Hi Jemima,

    The £212 is labelled as "Incl-VAT", and the tax is being applied at 20%.

    212.00 - 35.33 = 176.67 (this is the exclusive tax "net" figure)
    176.67 * 20% = 35.33

    The app will indicate whether amounts are incl. or excl. tax and will pick the more commonly used based on the account in Account 1. If when entering figures you want to switch to one or the other, click on the cog at the top of the form (shown top right in your screenshot). Then click "Show Excl. VAT" or "Show Incl. VAT" as appropriate. Note: These options are only available if VAT applies with the two accounts selected.

    I hope that helps,
