Why can I only select German VAT rates during receipt creation?

Lanes & Planes offers users the option of uploading expense receipts of various categories directly via the desktop version or the Lanes & Planes Mobile App for a booking or independently of it. You can find out more about this here.

The receipt categories are primarily geared to the needs of your employees and accounting department. For this reason, we have deliberately decided to adjust the VAT rates of the individual categories and the per diem rates in a way that caters to employees with German company affiliation. Depending on the category, we therefore specify the German VAT rate or show a specific selection of tax rates or per diem rates. In this way we actively prevent a large source of error and unnecessary additional work for the accounting department, as the tax rate is selected in the document by drop-down instead of manual entry.

If a receipt is to be submitted with a tax rate other than the German one, the tax rate 0.0% can be selected.

The extension of the document management for the EU foreign countries will take place in 2022.
If, in the meantime, you would like to use the document management for foreign subsidiaries, you can do so by using the VAT rate of 0.00%, which must then be corrected by the accounting department when transferred to your ERP system or in your ERP system itself.

Please note: VAT rates abroad on Lanes & Planes invoices is already possible in many countries with the respective valid VAT ID number and tax rate!
