Miss E
Not done it either but have found this on AskSage website.
You might find it usefull

To post a supplier invoice to record the duty and import VAT

You cannot reclaim any import VAT paid until you have received form C79 from HMRC.

If you have received form C79

  1. Open the Suppliers module then from the Links pane, click Batch Invoice.

    Sage Accounts v11 and below - Open the Suppliers module then click Invoice.

    The Batch Supplier Invoices window appears.

  2. To record the supplier invoice for duty and import VAT, enter the relevant details in the boxes provided. For example:

    IMPORTSDate5101Import VAT0.00T187.50
    IMPORTSDate5101Import duty100.00T117.50

    Note: If you are using the Sage default nominal structure, 5101 is the Import Duty nominal code. The import VAT transaction does not affect this nominal code, as the net value is zero.

    Generally VAT is charged on duty at the same rate as the item being imported. However, if you do not know which VAT rate to apply, you should contact your local VAT office.

  3. To post the invoice and return to the Suppliers window, click Save then click Close.

You have now posted your duty and import VAT charges. The VAT element is picked up in box 4 in the VAT Return, reclaiming the VAT amount.

You have now completed all of the transactions necessary to reclaim the import VAT and the VAT on duty on goods purchased from countries outside the EC.

Sorry about the layout but copying & pasting messes up the format a bit
