Webinar Q+A

Also, over the course of the webinar a number of questions were asked by our attendees, please find a selection of the questions with answers below:

Question Answer
Is there any functionality for Group VAT returns?  No - Currently, the functionality works for individual companies only. However, Microsoft may choose to develop this further to include Group VAT returns.
If you had a company from another system, how would you add it? The functionality in Business Central and NAV only obtains data from the transactions posted to the VAT entry table. You cannot import data from another system.
Do we need to set this up for each company that has to file a VAT return? Yes - For each company you will need to follow the steps outlined in the webinar for linking the application to HMRC.
So the system auto fills the information - but we can overwrite any numbers in the form? No - The Amount field is not editable. For this functionality to work you must be doing your statements in NAV.
