As soon as you prepare your VAT return on Sage then you should reconcile your VAT transactions. This means that each transaction that has gone into the VAT return is flagged as reconciled 'R' within Sage and it does not then reappear when you try to prepare the next VAT return. (Unreconciled items are marked 'N'.)
If you have any problems in preparing the VAT Return go to Sage Help or call us on 01903 600555.
Assuming that you have prepared your VAT return and checked it then you should back up your data because once you have reconciled your transactions then they cannot be unreconciled.
To reconcile your VAT transactions
- From the VAT Return window click Reconcile.
- To reconcile the transactions click Yes.
Easy! But essential.
