    • Capital goods – The goods are capital goods. The calculated VAT amount is debited to the VAT deferred account.

  7. Enter the percentage usage of the purchased goods that is used for the production or manufacturing of nontaxable goods in the Non recoverable pct. field.


    The percentage of the tax amount defined in the Non recoverable pct. field is posted to the ledger account (debit type) or loaded on inventory. The remaining amount is posted to the recoverable account or the deferred account for the specified TIN, based on the VAT goods type selected.

    The VAT amount is calculated and posted to the VAT recoverable account when the VAT goods type is Input in step 7. However, if the transaction is for capital goods, the VAT amount is calculated and posted to the VAT-deferred account, and the VAT deferment installments are created, based on the deferment schedule set up for the TIN.
