Purchase Orders should be excluded from VAT returns and trial balances etc or at least a warning notice needs to be added for purchase order users

    As a minimum a warning notice should be included I would say.

    I agree terry - very misleading that the process is still detailed in the help sections. Was somewhat flummoxed that entries then appeared in the TB and VAT return.
