Entering VAT payment

I’m a VAT registered business. I started using Quickfile on 1st April, mostly because of MTD on VAT coming in. I submitted my last VAT return manually at the end of April for the period up to end March. So the payment to HMRC appears in my bank statement in Quickfile, but it’s for VAT that was generated by transactions that aren’t in Quickfile. So how should I tag this payment from my bank account in Quickfile?

Tag it to vat liability account and when you enter your opening balance sheet it would make vat liability account zero

Great, thank you that makes sense.
