VAT - Bad Debt Relif?

Hi another quick one

do you treat bad debt VAT reclaim as a purchase? therefore reclaim the VAT as output VAT and enter the net figure in purchases?

    When writng off a Bad Debt that includes VAT the journal would be :-

    Dr Bad & Doubtful Debts Expense (Net)
    Dr VAT Control A/c (VAT)
    Cr Debtors Control A/c (Gross)

    On the VAT form the bad debt VAT reclaim I believe should be included with your Inputs (Box 4).

    Hope this helps :001_smile:
