This is only the second VAT return I’ve had to do under MTD and I’m struggling to make the figures match. I think I have an issue with which VAT return an invoice goes against.
As far as I can see, there are three dates associated with each purchase I make
- The invoice date
- The date I enter it into Quickfile
- The date I pay it.
Which one of these determines which VAT return it goes on?
i.e if I order something on account towards the end of a quarter, type the details into Quickfile a week later, and then pay it 30 days after the invoice date, making it after the end of the quarter, which return will it go on?
