It makes it quick/easy to check that you have used the correct VAT rates when preparing the VAT return, and check for data input errors before submitting VAT return. We use Cash Accounting method. The report that has been created to replace it DOES NOT WORK properly, and is useless for identifying the applicable transactions being included on our VAT returns.
The "0% & N/A VAT Transaction" report in the Reports Menus only works on calendar periods, and includes all purchase & invoice transactions between two dates, regardless of whether it has been paid or not, and also generates an N/A line for every comment line used on invoices & purchases, which generates a lot of entries that should not be included at all, and is of not a lot of use in terms of matching up entries for inclusion on the VAT return when using Cash Accounting method, as they only need including once payment occurs!
It also DOES NOT INCLUDE any transactions that have been processed as direct bank transactions/payments and that are 0% or N/A VAT, and there is also no means of identifying other VAT rates that may have been keyed in, eg 5% on utilities.
