Fuel scale charges on a VAT return:

Our customer has to post fuel scale charges but as posting it as a journal it will always show both sided transactions on the VAT return. The current workaround is to post it in the adjustments section when producing the final VAT return. The customer says this will happen more and more and wondered if there was any other way of posting it without going to the adjustments section? Spoke to Sage support and they said not currently, so logging this on the ideas hub as requested.
