Set Up Cyprus VAT

I am setting now the QB online for a Cyprus Company and i have trouble setting up the VAT rates. I am using QB online for UK company and the set up of VAT was much easier.

QB have already the following VAT rates but i want to create more such as:

-R.C. from Non Eu countries (Purchases)

-Exempt - 0%

- Outstide of Scope - 0%

How can I create the above rates?

Also, I run the Summary report and nothing is shown. I have recorded few expenses with VAT on purchases (recoverable) and they are not appeared to any VAT report. I can see that the VAT correctly treated as VAT and it is shown on Liabilities. Please advise.




Hi there,

You can use the above tax rates by creating a Custom tax per VAT in QuickBooks Online (QBO).

Here's how:
  1. Click Taxes on the left menu.
  2. On the VAT page, click the Add tax tab.
  3. Under What type of tax do you want to add?, choose Custom tax.
  4. Enter all the information needed.
  5. Once done, click Save.
  6. Then, repeat the same steps for other tax names.

For more details about setting up VAT rates, you can check out this article: Set up and edit VAT settings, VAT codes and VAT rates.

On the other hand, it's possible the Start of current tax period is set up to an earlier month. Then, you've created the expense transactions (with VAT) only for the month of April that's why is only showing in the VAT Liability Report.

It would be best also to use QBO Cyprus region for you to generate the right VAT report for the Cyprus company.

I found helpful articles for more details about VAT and tax reports:

People come to QuickBooks Learn & Support for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
