I need to file a VAT return covering Jan-March 2019. I have entered all sales and purchase invoices for that period in the QF system where it says Enter new purchase and Create new invoice. That seemed fine and I saved all the entries. I then went to the Create New VAT Return. I entered the date range 1/1/2019-31/3/2019 but the form came up blank with £0.00 in each box. I assumed that the information I had saved for sales and purchases would automatically be loaded into the VAT return form ready for me to submit. Why doesn’t this work?
There are a few things to check here, such as:
Are you on cash or actual accounting for VAT? If it’s cash and your invoices aren’t marked as paid, they won’t be included
If you’re on accrual accounting, are your invoices dated correctly?
Have you entered a VAT start date in your settings? Anything prior to the start date is ignored
On my VAT settings it gives the start date as 1/4/2019. That must be the cause of the problem. Thanks.
