Renaming sales accounts

 

SALES ACCOUNTS REPRESENT TURNOVER ACCOUNTS AND SHOULD BE USED TO RECORD THE ACTUAL SALES MADE BY THE BUSINESS TO IT'S CUSTOMERS ONLY.

For any "Other Income" items which are not sales-related, the user has an option to customise income accounts - see "Income Accounts" within the Topic list.

There are a number of sales accounts already set up which cannot be added to or taken away from, however you may show or hide any of the accounts from view to prevent use (see 'Adding Nominal Accounts').

To facilitate customisation, these pre-set sales accounts are available to rename in order to specify the businesses sales activities or to group specific sales areas together.

Fixed Name                                                                                             
 

Click on the Fixed Name of the sales account which you wish to rename e.g. Sales at Standard Rate.  The fixed sales accounts available to rename split into VAT rate accounts:

 

  • Sales/fee accounts at standard rate (i.e. VAT at 23%)
  • Sales/fee accounts at low rate (i.e. VAT at 13.50%)
  • Sales/fee accounts at lower rate (i.e VAT at 9%)
  • Sales/fee accounts at zero rate (i.e. VAT at zero)
  • Sales/fee account VAT exempt (i.e. VAT non applicable)

 

ONCE RENAMED, THE VAT RATE THAT IS LINKED TO THE ORIGINAL ACCOUNT WILL AUTOMATICALLY REMAIN LINKED TO THAT ACCOUNT.

 

Enter Preferred Name here                   

Within this box type the preferred name of the sales account that will suit your particular trading activities e.g. Choose the "Sales at Standard Rate" account and rename to "Sale of Accounts Software".  Each time a sale invoice / transaction is entered for a Customer against this sales account, a VAT rate of 23% will attach.

The account will now show under the user determined preferred name on the accounts and all reports.

 
 
Update
 
Click on Update to save the new preferred name
 
 

Once a sales account has been renamed it will automatically appear within the nominal accounts available for selection within the sales and receipts transaction screens.

When using these accounts within the transaction screens, the VAT is automatically processed at the corresponding VAT rate attached to the account i.e 'Sales at standard rate' will automatically attach a VAT rate of 23% to the transaction.  The VAT rate attached cannot be amended.
