Uk vat report

I have been using gnucash for 2 years now - it is a great program 
I have tested a copy of clint redwoods uk vat report against my accounts
It did not take too long to get it working once I found a 'how to' and
worked out that using Ubuntu I had to create my own config.user file
with the run command for the .scm  

It works very well - and brought up the correct figures.

I had a little trouble as I had renamed my Vat:Input to
Vat:Input-purchases and also included a separate box for EC vat (this
was for my own convenience )- so  I initially had 0.00 showing in Box 4
although it was doing the calc for box 5 correctly

Once I worked out what the problem was I renamed the accounts and merged
them then the figures worked fine.

Many thanks to Clint for this - it will save me a lot of time and effort
- I do hope the report is included in the next Gnucash release as it is
very useful (a must have really) for UK business users who want an Open
Source accounts package
and adding it in yourself may be a bit daunting for some people.

My only other wish for Gnucash now is an easy way to export to a Calc
spreadsheet - it is possible but a bit time consuming at the minute -
apart from that I think it is an excellent program and very intuitive to
