Allow unit price to be excl. VAT
Unit price is shown inclusive of VAT but invoice should have ability to show prices exclusive too. Column in sent invoice for unit price doesn't indicate that price is inclusive. Simple solution is for unit price to be exclusive and Line Amount is inclusive.
More flexible solution is to have option to show unit and line item as inclusive or exclusive and ensure column header indicates incl. or excl.
Thank you for that suggestion! We’ve added it to our list of things to investigate further for our European customers.
Hi Small Business Team,
Are you any closer to implementing the idea and a comments from other users? They are all absolutely correct and you need to do this ASAP if you want UK users to use this service. People will know soon that the service is not fit for purpose in the UK if you do not resolve the issue soon.
Net Total £100
VAT @ 20% £20
Total including VAT £120
This is a real problem in the UK as most customers wish to see day rate or unit price exclusive of VAT followed by the quantity and the total - one times the other. Then at the foot, the VAT rate applied with a subtotal for VAT applied to the subtotal of the invoice lines and a grand total being the sum of the two. Most packages do it this way and most customers will not accept a VAT inclusive line item with no exclusive rate shown.
This is also what I have been asking Customer services, In business to business you don't show prices with VAT, or at least one column without VAT. My customers wont accept it as they would have to deduct the VAT to see the true cost.
