Glitch on vat returns and suggestion on net value totals

If I change the date range (for 01 - 31 March 2019) on the vat return page and hit recalculate it still shows figures for the current VAT quarter as opposed to the month that I asked for. If I can set a month I would hope to get the results for the month specified only or the information is misleading. Please check this one out when you get a chance. I have to do ONS surveys and use this to give me the net sales figure for a single month. On another note it would be nice to be able to set a preference to show ‘net’ totals where you select multiple items (like where you batch select sales, or search for all sales in a period). This would be more useful to me than VAT inclusive prices as some invoices do include and others are not subject to VAT so it is not clear what net value is outstanding at a glance. The other option would be to show Gross and net values in the summary that is displayed (probably be most useful to all users)

That sounds like the correct behaviour to me as it pulls in all data from previous periods that has not been accounted for, so the return for the current period could very well legitimately include data from outside the date range for the return you specify. I think you probably want to use some other report rather than trying to use the VAT return submission tool as a report.

Thanks, that sounds perfectly logical just not thinking it through far enough! I will look more closely at the reports thanks for the tip

Hi @sean1,

I’m glad that @Lurch has answered your question. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help with :slight_smile:

If you have any suggestions how to get a report for net values of sales (that have been paid for in full) for a month please share! I guess I need some education!
