Hello @Beeches1

There could be a number of reasons, and without examining the figures it’s a bit tricky for us to say. However, there are a few things worth checking:

Thank you Matthew, in answer to the above, set for cash accounting, all payments received from Clients not showing and all payments in are associated with a bank account, either current or petty cash. Yes, start date is set to 01/01/2018 (ie the first qtr). I’ve downloaded the calculations and all that is showing are two “prepayments” for one Client, with zero VAT. Help, feel that this is the way I am logging the payments against the outstanding invoice or perhaps the way I have set the Client up, dont know. Sue

Hi, I’ve just tried to complete vat return, had similar issues. Downloading the csv file it showed clearly box 6 calculation was different from the listed sales figures for box 6.
Had to manually correct/adjust for now, but seems there may be a bug in the system?

Hello @Jo_Ferreday1

There isn’t a bug that I’m aware of here. In the above situation, there was a setting that needed to be changed.

However, box 6 shouldn’t be different in the calculations to that on the return page. Did you figure out what caused this, or is it something you would like to look into for you?

Hi, could you look into this for us? We manually added the relevant information for VAT return Jan-March 2018 and it was still showing the incorrect value in box 6 but correct values were listed in the download.
Thanks.
