Application of VAT on Non-revenue Accounts

You can calculate tax for non-revenue accounts created under the group Current Assets and Current Liabilities . Further, for non-revenue account ledgers created under the group Investments , Loans & Advances (Assets) , Loans (Liability) , and Misc. Expenses (Assets) .

Non-revenue accounts can be used for recording transactions related to advances, receivables, and payables. They become taxable when used to record a provisional transaction and then adjusted when the transaction is accrued. For example, expenses paid in advance with VAT are then adjusted when the actual payment becomes due. Further, advance received from a customer with tax is adjusted when the actual sales transaction is recorded. When a non-revenue account is used to book a payment or receipt, the voucher value will not affect the turnover for the period.
