VAT RETURN won't recognise legitimate sales


I’ve been using Quick File for six months now to file my digital VAT return.

I file Vat returns quarterly (Q1 - 1st Jan - 1st March) etc.

When I just tried to file Q2 Vat return - I realised that £4970 of Sales that are in Q1 period have not been featured into the Return - and instead been put into the Q3 return.

Even though the Dates of the Sales + Purchases are all imputed correctly.

Can you explain why this has happened? As it’s very worrying especially as the software programme has worked well up to this point.



Hi @NeilBis

Can I just ask whether you are on Cash Accounting? If you’re on cash accounting, it’s the date of the payment that’s taken into account for the returns rather than the date of the purchase or sale.

I hope this helps, but if you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
