Default VAT Rate for Supplier

I use a range of freelancers, some are VAT registered, some are not.

It would be great if I could set the VAT rate for each as part of their supplier profile.


That way everytime I log an invoice for Robin it puts VAT on top, everytime I put an invoice for Lucy, it doesn't, rather than manually having to change it every time.

    The suppliers area of our app is contained within the old application and not our new REST API. Therefore any work on this area will not be considered at this time as we will eventually be re-engineering the entire area on our new UI

    I asked support about this yesterday and they said it was a good idea and I should go to Canvass and add this suggestion!

    I had just filed a similar request (now deleted) as this is exactly what I suggested too.

    Not all suppliers use the Standard Rate VAT. Some suppliers only supply goods or services that have 'Reduced Rate' or even 'Zero Rate'.

    Currently, when adding zero rated train tickets for instance, you have to manually change the rate from 20% to 0% for each line item and again for each purchase.

    If the Supplier setting had an option to set the default VAT for that particular supplier to something other than Standard Rate not only would it save a lot of time, it would also prevent many erroneous VAT entries.
