I have just signed up for Making Tax digital and imported by files from my old quickbooks. However the VAT amount is incorrect. One of the issues is a lot of old unassigned VAT from 2016 and older. We are not due the VAT to HMRC and the accounts have been completed and submitted since then. How can I clear these unassigned VAT amounts as due to them being imported and not relating to the current VAT quarter I cannot adjust the totals shown. In case this make a difference our VAT rates vary from exempt, partial and full. Thank you.
Thank you for your prompt reply. Let me take care of this query for you.
You'll have to mark each return manually, from way back 2016 up until the present, following the steps provided by my peer, @Jen_D above. Once it's marked as filed, the link beside that return will show Record payment. You'll have to manually record the payment as well, and then move on to the next return. Keep doing these steps until you get to to your latest VAT return period.
More details on recording a VAT payment or refund are in this article: How to record a VAT payment or refund. This includes a video for your reference, as well as 2 separate steps for the payment and refund process.
Feel free to post a comment below, in case you have other questions. I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
