How to enable an EC Sales List (ESL)

An EC Sales List is a report that has to be sent to HMRC by VAT-registered businesses who sell goods and services to other businesses in the wider EU. This article shows you how to enable FreeAgent's EC Sales List functionality.

NB: Once the functionality has been enabled, you can find out how to create a report here.

1. Navigate to 'VAT Registration' settings

Select 'Settings' from the drop-down menu in the top-right corner and then select 'VAT Registration'.


2. Select 'Yes' if you need to use VAT rates other than standard UK ones and then 'Save Changes'. All done!
