VAT Return Discrepancy

Hi, I’ve got a discrepancy on my VAT return. It is showing £131.60 more in Box 6 (Flat Rate Turnover) than it shows on a search for payments in that VAT date range. It also shows that I need to pay £15.90 more VAT (Box 5) than my calculations.

I know it’s only a small amount, but it’s the first time it’s ever been different and I just can’t understand it. It’s really annoying. We’re cash accounting, flat rate vat, so it’s based on incoming payments. Any ideas?

Hi @SarahJH

If you export the data for the VAT return you may find that it has picked up something from outside the date range - this could be because it was entered after the last VAT return was finalised

That’s really helpful. I’ve just exported it & can see the two amounts which I think I must have paid by credit already in their accounts. Many thanks for your help! :slightly_smiling_face:
