QB Issue Resolution:
If you have an Ireland version of QB online then from left hand vertical menu select Vat or tax and turn on to track Tax/vat.
Then you should be able to see under reports the vat summary or vat 3 report?
If this is correct what do you see as vat codes under rates & settings.
In here there should be some basic Vat codes & settings. Y9ou swill need to select one of these on the transaction line under the column header showing VAT or TAX.
The same vat code can be used for sales as purchases the transaction type will define how the vat/tax is applied and reported.
All you have to do is select the rate code which is correct for the type of transaction you are entering.
Take a screen shot of the vat codes and post here.
