Edit the VAT

If the VAT Rate changes or you are not registered for VAT, you can change the rate in ‘Options’. (If you are not registered for VAT, change the rate to 0%).

Cashflow Manager has a simple unique system to help you accurately calculate and report your VAT. Each column has a VAT Tax Type that matches the boxes on the VAT Statement. 

When entering Money In or Money Out you record the gross amount (including VAT) into the appropriate column and the VAT automatically calculates.

To edit the VAT:

1.Record the receipt or payment as normal.

2.Left click on the grey selector box to select the row.

3.Right click on the grey selector box and select [Edit VAT].

4.Record the correct VAT in the box that appears.

Auto Column Selection

To speed up your recordkeeping, you can setup the program so that whenever you type in a customer or supplier name, the amount automatically goes to the selected column.

To do this, click on [Options] and then ‘Auto Column Selection’ on the left side menu. Click on ‘Money Out’ and the names of Suppliers you have previously typed into the program will appear.

Select ‘Optus’ as the Supplier. Click on the drop down and select ‘Telephone’ as the column.

Private Use Automation

If you have a standard private use percentage that applies to payments recorded in a particular column, you can setup the program to calculate the amount of private use and record that amount in a selected ‘private use’ column.

As an example, let’s say you have 80% private use of your motor vehicle. 

Click on the [Options] icon and then on ‘Private Use Columns’.

Click on ‘Payments’ to list all your Payments/Money Out columns.

Scroll down to the ‘Motor Vehicle’ column and click on the Percentage (it will be 0 unless you have previously recorded an amount of private use). Click on the drop down box arrow at the right of the ‘Motor Vehicle’ line and select ‘Owners Drawings’ as the Private Use column.

When you enter an amount in the Motor Vehicle column (e.g. £100), it will save the business proportion (e.g. 20% of £100 = £20) in the Motor Vehicle column and allocate the private proportion (e.g. 80% of £100 = £80) to Owners Drawings.
