For Example Consider 3 months contract with monthly value as 3000.00 SAR. Total Contract Value is 9000.00 SAR Customer Paid [9000.00 + 450.00 (@VAT 5%)] = 9450.00 SAR - Raised Voucher as V1. Note: We are reconciling our invoices auto from advance, what the amount we received at contract as advance. Jan 2018 - Invoice 1 3000.00 + 150.00 = 3150.00 Feb 2018 - Invoice 2 3000.00 + 150.00 = 3150.00 Feb 2018 - Invoice 2 3000.00 + 150.00 = 3150.00 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- VAT Filing in the month of Jan 2018 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- V1 9000.00 450.00 = 9450.00 I1 3000.00 150.00 = 3150.00 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 12000.00 600.00 = 12600.00 ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Assumptions are that, here Input VAT=0.00 SAR Output VAT= 600.00, From Above Example Tax Payment in Jan 2018 to Govt is = 600.00 - 0.00 = 600.00 (Output VAT - Input VAT) Tax Payment in Feb 2018 to Govt is = 150.00 - 0.00 = 150.00 (Output VAT - Input VAT) Tax Payment in Mar 2018 to Govt is = 150.00 - 0.00 = 150.00 (Output VAT - Input VAT) For This Contract I paid Totally VAT to govt is 900.00 SAR.
