In this case, there are no ICP / ICV VAT code setup in the company settings in Basecone. Therefore, the additional fields will not appear in the booking screen.

In Basecone, go to Settings - Company - Action (edit) - tab Settings and go to section VAT settings. Select the correct ICP / ICV VAT code in the field Sales ICP vatcodes and scroll down to save the settings.

The field Purchase ICP vatcodes should stay empty.

After the VAT code is saved, go to the booking screen and select that same VAT code. The additional fields will appear as follows: 

  • Choose the performance type: goods or service

  • Fill in the country code and the VAT number

When all fields are entered, you can now book the invoice.
