How do I delete a VAT return in QB's marked as filed?

Hello Nettlesbookkeepi, once it has been marked as filed it can not be deleted. What is the reason you are needing to remove it? Has this period been filed with HMRC?

How do I delete a VAT return in QB's marked as filed?

I prepared the return and sent the details to the accountant to file, as I've not yet set up MTD on QB's for the client.

I then learnt how to correctly post a supplier credit payment, they had previously been added as deposits only.

I then pressed the button to file the VAT, not realising that the amount due on QB's was slightly different to my prepared return, due to the above supplier credits.

My return is now showing with a £5.01 difference, so I was wondering if I can re-do??

Thanks
