how do you record on bullet a reverse vat entry for a subcontractor- I work in the construction sector. Vat is not charged on invoice by subcontractor but is paid by the principal contractor

    It depends on whether you are the principal or the subcontractor. If you are sub contractor you invoice in principal at 0% VAT, If you are the principal contractor, the subcontractor invoices you at 0% and then you invoice the client and add VAT at 13.5% or 23%.

    Hope this helps.
  2. I'm the principal contractor- I'm aware that the invoice by subcontractor is at 0% VAT but my question is yea you can enter the subcontractors invoice on bullet with 0% VAT. But this is inaccurate to reflect you're VAT liability. It seems that Bullet doesn't have a facility or desire like other accounts packages to facilitate a reverse VAT entry for those in the construction sector- might have to move...

We’re not really designed for the construction industry they have a lot of weird tax rules due to the level of fraud.
You can charge 0% on our invoices and then the principle contractor can charge VAT.
Hope that helps.
