At the 3rd split of the above figure, it is a not customer receipt. In the first two splits, these are customer receipt. So the VAT appears to be blank in both the VAT Code and VAT column. In the code column since the first two are customer receipt, it appears to be 771 by default as the Bank account is chosen as 771. For the non-customer receipt select the nominal code manually from the nominal look up.

Add: By using the “ADD” button you can add splits in the browser. For e.g. 10 lines will be there by default. If you wish to add a split in the Quick Receipt Browse click on “ADD” to add more than 10 splits.

Split: You can only split a non-customer Receipt by using the split button from the Quick Receipt Browse. For e.g.: a receipt of 500 has been entered as a non-customer receipt with a nominal code of 351 (Motor Expenses). Now if you wish to split that select the non-customer receipt and select “Split”. Now the amount 500 which was entered as a non customer you can split the amount. Before allocating you can change the nominal code and the VAT number. By using the look up button you can change the VAT Rate, nominal code, and the Notes.

Please note  Once you split the non-customer receipt the VAT code and Code will appear as “Split”. To check the split of the receipt again select the split after focusing on the non-customer receipt.
