View Full Version : How to get old VAT reports
10-17-2003, 01:46 PM
I recently posed a question about VAT reports changing over time, and received several very helpful replies from you lot out there. So thanks very much.
I have upgraded from QB 2001 to 2003, and like the way that QB files all transactions from a completed VAT period, so it is impossible to alter them.
However I am trying to run a VAT report for a completed period, and am stumped as to how to do it. I don't want to change any details, or pay anything, I just want to see if the VAT 100 report that I run now corresponds with the printed copy that I have on file.
Again any suggestions would be most welcome

I'm afraid this is the problem with the new VAT Return routine in QB 2003 - its one step forward but the step back is you seem to lose the ability to display/reprint a decent report for old periods. The one you get is a very crude report mixing inputs & outputs. Perhaps there is a way of reformatting it but I've not worked this out.
If you have not kept previous reports from your QB2001 days, you can restore your QB 2001 data on to the QB 2001 program but what a pain.
I now do not run the new VAT routine in QB2003 because of this loss of reporting. I reconcile the Return to the VAT control and password the data at the Return date. The alternative would be to output the detailed reports to Excel so you have them for the future.
Lets hope this problem is fixed in the near future.

So it's not just me being dense then? You say you can get a very crude report. How do you do that exactly? I can't get anything at all apart from a load of zeros

The crude report I referred to - Suppliers>VAT>Prior VAT Returns>Report.
However these reports are only available for the VAT Returns processed using the new VAT routine in QB2003. There are no filters available so it seems no ability to refine this report.

I would also post a health warning on any VAT prior-period VAT reporting using the new QB2003 system. I have been having many problems with transactions using the EC VAT code feature where numbers in the reports have been calculated incorrectly.
