Just a quick one; just submitted my VAT return for November, deadline being today.
We actually had monies due to HMRC this time around instead of a repayment (we do a lot of exporting).
Noticing online when I checked it said that payment should reach HMRC by the deadline also, I sent the monies via Faster Payments.
The email confirmation from quickfile said payment would be taken via direct debit on the 11/01.
And now looking online (a little further) it says payment would be taken in 3 days via direct debit.
My questions are;
Will HMRC automatically notice I’ve paid it via transfer and therefore not take the monies via direct debit?
Or will they take it anyway and have received two lots of the amount?
If that is the case, and they have the money twice, do I then claim that over payment to them back on the next return? And if again that’s the case, do I then assume quickfile will notice the extra amount and calculate it back automatically on the return for December? OR would thie be a manual process?
