When de-registering for VAT, exisiting repeating invoices should also be amended
We recently de-registered for VAT, and amended the VAT setting in Kashflow (after consulting the Helpdesk).
I tested this by creating a manual invoice, and sure enough there was no mention of VAT. All hunky-dory, I thought.
Then a few days later, two repeating invoices were created ... both had VAT added! HMRC takes a dim view of companies who issue VAT invoices (and charge VAT) when they are not registered - we're talking 'penalties' here.
It transpires that currently Kashflow doesn't change the VAT setting for repeating invoices!! I've had to manually edit all 50+ repeating invoices.
Removing the VAT setting should be applied to ALL invoices going forwards - Kashflow needs to be amended.
Although asked to add this as a suggestion, I consider it a BUG!
Thank you for getting in touch. I would agree that this is something the system should do automatically for you. I will speak with our development team and ask them to review your request.
