5.7 Display VAT and Gross Amounts

For organisations that have UK VAT enabled, your system administrator may have implemented the display of 'VAT and Gross Amounts'. If so, the system will calculate an estimated amount of VAT at the point of requisition creation based upon the tax type associated to each item and display VAT and Gross values on the face of the requisition and in the requisition submitted screen.

Ordinarily, item extended amounts in all requisition and purchase order screens are calculated and displayed net of VAT. Only VAT treatments are (optionally) displayed on the purchase order and VAT is only calculated and displayed in the invoice entry screen for validating the supplier entered VAT amount.

Enabling the display of VAT and Gross Amounts benefits those organisations that are unable to recover all or some of their VAT (e.g. educational establishments or charities). By displaying gross amounts these organisations are able to determine more accurately the total value of expenditure. VAT amounts are also displayed during the routing of requisitions and purchase order requests for approval.

The following are summary examples of how the display of VAT and Gross Amounts could be utilised:

  1. An organisation that is unable to recover VAT will be able to display tax values and gross amounts on requisitions to ensure that requisitioners procure accurately within a gross expenditure budget.
  2. An organisational division that is unable to recover VAT is able to provide approvers with gross requisition totals for approval to ensure that expenditure is based on the true cost to the division.
  3. An asset management or technology department that is able to track the true cost of capital expenditure by including VAT amounts in requisitions and purchase orders.
