How do I deal with VAT on exports to the EU?


To export goods to an EU state, if you have the VAT number of the customer, you may zero-rate the goods, the customer deals with the VAT in their own country at their own VAT rate.

In KEY Accounts enter a Sales Invoice with a VAT code of ZX and no VAT. This is Export VAT


To import goods you must account for the VAT in your own country at the same rate that would be applied if the goods were purchased locally.

In KEY Accounts

In this example goods have been imported with a value of £100. Set up a new Sales nominal called EC VAT

2. Enter a Purchase Invoice for the goods.


KEY Accounts allocates the VAT amounts to the correct boxes on the VAT Return
