Filing VAT Return for period prior to the last one that was filed

My client’s accounting records / papers were incomplete and as such the first VAT Return I submitted on his behalf was for the Q/E 01/16. Having now gathered the paperwork for the prior periods I wish to run and file returns for the Qs/E 04/15, 07/15 and 10/15 but am prevented from doing so as they pre-date the last filed return.

Can this be unlocked or is there another method?

Thanks in advance,


I think I had to do something similar to this a while ago. You need to roll back the submitted return and then re-run them in the correct order. Assuming nothing changes for the already submitted period when you redo it it should tally up to the same as what was submitted to HMRC.


Thanks Lurch - much appreciated
