Vatable Total query on Return

Hi. Just doing my latest return. I have 3 invoices totalling 23876.27 (vatable amount) but when i create a new vat return, it is saying the vatable amount is 23583.75. I cant work out why there is a difference?

Anyone got any ideas?


Are you on cash accounting?

Yes. I’m on cash…

If you use the export button on the vat return screen it’ll give you a CSV detailing exactly what makes up the different box totals. On cash accounting what matters is the date of payment rather than the date of the invoice, so the return may not include all the invoices dated in that quarter and it may include earlier invoices paid this quarter or advance payments against later invoices.
