I would like to use this list to see whether there are European users
of ERPnext who have implemented the tax for intra-community sales/
Let me explain how far I am with an example.
I have made entries in the tax file for every Item: VAT and VAT_EU.
(actually vat6,vat19,vat6_eu, and vat19_Eu)
So I have four (4) VAT account heads!!
We buy goods in Germany and receive a purchase invoice with zero VAT.
This data I enter in a Purchase Receipt and than I select the Tax
template “EU Purchase” , that puts the VAT into VAT_Eu account heads.
This all works ok, but the problem arises when making the bank/cash
payment voucher. The debit/credit is now the German purchase invoice
plus the calculated taxes.
Not correct since we paid the amount without tax. If I manually
correct and enter the without tax amount (that i actually paid to the
supplier) i violate accounting rules, since there is one debit
recording of the tax and no counter credit!!
I checked how NL accounting systems deal with this and found a
reference in Dutch here:http://home.hccnet.nl/van.asperen/Boekhouden/
The example is for 19% VAT:
Case 1: Purchase in NL so the standard purchase, Euro 1000 with 19%
Debit Stock (1000), Debit Purchase VAT(190), and credit supplier
Case 2: Purchase in the EU Euro 1000 no VAT.
Debit Stock (1000), Credit supplier (1000) , Debit Purchase VAT (190)
and credit VAT_EU (190).
Since this system is the same for all EU countries I believe it is
worthwhile to work this out.
I am curious whether I am a lonely pioneer in the European ERPNext and
Tax landscape or there are others
