Tax Summary and VAT Return wildly different

I have noticed that our Tax Summary and VAT report for the same period are quite different.
We are using cash accounting. Is this why?

There is almost £1,000 difference showing and I would like to understand why.
I’m sure its correct, just trying to understand.


Yes this is correct, the tax summary reports only on an invoice basis, whereas the actual VAT return (in the case of cash accounting) calculates on a cash basis.

Thanks Glenn,

Appreciated as always.
