Need to enter bill payment for VAT submission made via MTD

Just submitted my second VAT return on QB Desktop using MTD.  However, I didn't check the option to raise a bill for payment...  VAT Control account thinks VAT has been paid.  I can see the VAT journal in Accounts Payable which of couse is not yet marked as PAID.  How do I (effectively) enter a bill and pay it from the current account?  Or is there another way to achieve the same end?

 

Thank you.

Hi Sesai,

 

Thank you for letting us know, when you select supplier pay bills, it should bring a pop up screen with all the outstanding bills.

Can we ask you to try selecting file>utilities and then rebuild data, if you still get the same results, please let us know.

Hi there, Sesai.

 

When you file VAT via MTD, QuickBooks will generate either an immediate bank payment or set up a creditor balance in the Pay Bills utility. Thus, you can make payment for the outstanding amount using Pay Bills.

 

Here's how: 

  1. Go to the Suppliers menu, then choose Pay Bills.
  2. Select Accounts Payable account, then the bills you want to pay from the table.
  3. Select the payment date and method.
  4. Click Pay Selected Bills.
  5. Hit Done

Please don't hesitate to let me know if I can be of further assistance. Wishing you well.

Thanks for your speedy reply, MaryGraceS.  Unfortunately, selecting Suppliers\Pay Bills does not display a next screen.  Choosing the Bill Tracker option displays a screen for open/overdue/paid bills - there are no open (or overdue) bills.

Thank you, EmmaM.  One error identified (#179) and fixed during the Rebuild Data action.  Supplier pay bills screen now displays and have successfully paid the VAT bill.

 

With thanks to you and MaryGraceS for your assistance in resolving the issue.

 

Kind regards
