How to change the VAT code in Sage Pastel Version 17 and older

This mini-tutorial was created for Creative Minds® customers only, but we have decided to share it wider as a service to all Pastel users.

The Treasury announced an increase of 1 % in VAT, effective from April the 1st of 2018.

Creative Minds® prepared the following mini-tutorial for you to show you how to change the VAT percentage in Pastel.

Sage Pastel is offering a free update for all active Support Cover clients.

The best advice that we can give you is not to change this percentage too soon. To minimize changing default settings on your Pastel, we will create temporary codes for 14%, so that you can carry on using your existing VAT codes after the 1st of April 2018.

Please follow the steps described meticulously to ensure that the transition to the new VAT percentage is a smooth one for you and your business.
