Hi @Smartkleen

The first thing you should check is the calculations for the return. At the bottom of the return screen you’re given the option to download these as a .csv file. This will show you the complete breakdown.

I’d also recommend checking your VAT settings:

  • If this is your first return, check the start date
  • Are you set up as the correct scheme (cash or accrual)?
  • If you’re on the Flat Rate scheme, is the rate correct?

I hope that helps!

Your settings look incorrect to me:

Accrual Accounting (Flat Rate @ 20%)

Are you actually on the Flat Rate scheme? If so your Flat Rate percentage wouldn’t be 20%. Can you please check this?
