    I'm using MYOB to keep the acocunts for a small non-profit organisation.
    It's not registered for VAT, but sometimes we get invoices which include

    How should I handle this in MYOB? It's tedious to go through all the
    lines of an invoice adding VAT to each manually when the invoice doesn't
    show the VAT-inclusive value of each line.

    Secondly, should I record purchases with a VAT code of N-T (no tax) or
    should I just set the Standard VAT rate to 0%?

    Thanks for suggestions.

    Rack space and bandwidth. So we'll get an invoice saying (say):

    Rackspace: £100
    Bandwidth: £100

    Total: £200
    VAT: £35

    Total inc. VAT: £235

    For us those line items are really £117.50 each, because we can't do
    anything with VAT except treat it as part of the price of the stuff
    we're purchasing. So what I'd like is to tap '100' in MYOB in the
    appropriate places and have it know that it should automagically become
    £117.50, instead of having to get out my calculator.

    But I don't think it can be done in MYOB. It's not that great a problem
    for us, but it would be a nuisance if you were not registered for VAT
    and did much buying from VAT-registered suppliers.

    I think you just have to do the calculation. You could always phone
    MYOB technical support.
