You must post the VAT deferment amount from the VAT deferred account to the VAT recoverable account before settling amounts to the tax authorities. You can process the VAT deferment amounts only for the same tax ledger posting group, for a Tax Identification Number (TIN), for a particular tax settlement period, and for a given period range.


This process is sometimes referred to as the presettlement process.

  2. Select the TIN of the company in the Tax Identification Number (TIN) field.

  4. Enter the starting date in the From date field to run the presettlement process for transactions for a specific period.

  5. Enter a transaction date to post the voucher for the specific period in the Transaction date field.

  6. Click Show data to view the following details for the selected settlement period for the date range:

    • The starting date of the settlement period starting date.

    • The ending date of the settlement period.

    • The opening balance for the period.

    • The total recoverable value for the period.

    • The amount transferred to the recoverable account.

    • The closing balance for the period.

  7. Click Deferment lines to open the VAT deferment transactions form.

  8. Click the Overview tab and view the details of the posted VAT transactions.


    The Mark check box is selected for the transactions that are selected for transfer.
