VAT Return - Missed Sales and Payments


We have been using Quickfile for a year now - thanks :slight_smile:

Normally we have no issues when entering our purchases and sales and then simply running a VAT report which works great. However, although we have come across a few old purchases and sales that were missed from a previous VAT return.

If anybody could please confirm how to deal with this within our current VAT return it would be much appreciated, i.e. We need to include the missed purchases and sales in our latest return.

Apologies if this is a basic question and thanks in advance for your help!

If you just enter the invoices they will automatically get brought forward into the next return, so there’s nothing much else to do. Always download and check the calculations before submitting to HMRC.

Here’s an example.

  1. Return filed for 01/01/2014 to 31/03/2014.
  2. On 10/04/2014 an invoice is created for 15/03/2014 (i.e. within the previously submitted period).
  3. Now later on we are filing the VAT return for 01/04/2014 to 30/06/2014. The invoice entered at stage 2 will get included on this return.

Hope that helps!

Thanks Glenn, your post was a great help and has enabled us to successfully file our VAT return! :slight_smile:
