Vat report over two dates is inaccurate

I have created a vat report between two dates to cover a year. the report is inaccurate.
eg report created 1/12/2017 to 30/11/2018 produces big figures. If I download this report for excel it shows several entries in the year 2016, why is this when I specifically ask for dates 2017 to 2018?

Hello @dimck

It sounds like it may be down to your VAT start date causing this.

Hope that helps, but please do let us know if you need further assistance.

thanks, I will give this a try

I have set the Vat start date to the date I require and it makes no difference. it still brings in data from 2 years ago

I think its working now. I had TBA listed for the VAT number in VAT settings, even though the correct VAT number was in the account settings it wasnt showing in the VAT settings page
