The subject Gnucash VAT is widely searched for but answers are sadly lacking. The page about complience has over 2500 hits and I guess the majority of them are looking for a guide to using GnuCash for making UK VAT returns. That's what I'm looking for.
I have found one at  It covers the topic in detail till it comes to the important bit about making a VAT return.
Microsoft Money 2001 is really simple to use, input the date range for the VAT rerturn required and it produces the figures. We need something like this in GnuCash I'm sure many businesses are using GnuCash for VAT reports and it works well with good reports. The rest of us just need that final bit of documentation to enable UK VAT returns. --Utilitiesmanager 10:32, 16 January 2012 (EST)
