  14. k) T/C* – select the correct VAT code. TAB

Memo if a transaction is made up of more than one item eg you have been to the supermarket and purchased tea and coffee together with A4 paper you might want to split these items to sundries and stationery, just split the transaction over two lines using the same date and reference but different nominal codes, amounts and tax codes, just make sure that the Gross total at the bottom agrees to the total of the receipt when you have finished.
