County Court Claim


The company I work for received a county court claim which we have now paid, I just need some help on how to post this onto to sage and wether VAT is applicable or not?

The original supplier account still has outstanding invoices which relate to the claim but the claims payment was made to a solicitor. Can anyone help please?

To my knowledge, if there was VAT on the original Invoice and you have now paid it then you have to account for the VAT, if the Invoices are still on your system then treat them as any other Invoices that you usually pay, no VAT on court fees though.



These are only my opinions of how I see things and therefore should not be taken as advice

You dont say VAT what scheme you are/were on. You would possibly have claimed vat back on receipt of invoices, depending on the scheme used, but then should have adjusted the Vat claim to pay back to HMRC when the invoices were not paid after 6 months. Did you? Doesnt sound like it. So who knows. You need to clear as much of the account as has been directed by the court order so you will need to see the court determination. This will likely include adjusted for any other over claimed input vat/some still unpaid items so you will have to work through that. If you are still not sure, get the company accountant involved.
