A while back we wrote an article on Switching to VAT Cash Accounting on Sage 50.
One of the issues that can prevent you from switching VAT systems is the use of the Foreign Trader module in Sage. If Foreign Trader is switched on, you cannot switch VAT systems.
Our solution is to use a series of reports so that you can submit a VAT return based on the Irish VAT cash accounting system and continue to use Foreign Trader in Sage 50.
