Correct errors on a VAT Return

I created a purchase invoice for a transaction in error some months ago. The entry actually related to a private loan. I now know how it should have been done!! The entry didn’t affect the actual amount of VAT on my VAT return, and I’ve notified the VAT office so they can amend my purchase total for that quarter. Is there a way for me to delete the purchase record to ensure my Quickfile record is correct?

The only way to modify items locked in a previously submitted VAT return is to rollback the return. This will revoke the lock on the invoice. Once modified you can then recommit the return. The other way (and probably the most sensible option) is to journal in a correction. You can also correct errors on the next VAT return itself by making a VAT adjustment.

Great - thanks for your help Glenn
