I'm probably missing something but I can't figure out how VAT fits/works with vouchers. (from a business user perspective)

Trivial case:
When I buy a $25 voucher, my cart shows a value of $0 in VAT.
Which seems logical, as a voucher essentially equals money.

However when I then buy something with that voucher, the prices on the invoice include VAT.

Let's assume the product is $21 ex VAT, so the invoice price inc VAT shows $25.

Then it discounts/deducts the voucher leaving a total of $0.
And at the bottom it shows the amount of VAT 19% of $0 is $0.

But $4,- of VAT have still been payed, but are never declared on the invoices?

I know it's kinda silly to buy a voucher and use it yourself, but something still seems strange?

Oh well, it's way to late for this (1 am) but it been driving me nuts Wink
Anyone with some bright insights?
