It's great to have you here, @mw9

 

I'll share some information about filing VAT returns. 

 

You usually submit a VAT Return to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) every 3 months. This period of time is known as your accounting period.

 

If HMRC assigned your filing frequency as quarterly, you'll just need to manually edit the Start and End dates. This way, it will only cover for one month. Please keep in mind the Start date can't be edited if you've already filed VAT returns in the past. 

 

Here's how to manually edit the dates: 

 

  1. Go to Taxes from the left menu.
  2. On the VAT page, click Submit return. 
  3. On the Prepare VAT return page, edit the Start and End dates within one month. 
  4. Enter the Submission date
  5. Click Print or Export

 

 

After that, you'll need to manually submit it since this is the first filing of the form. Also, it won't be accepted through online if the dates aren't matched with the agency's filing frequency.  

 

Once done, you can either send it directly to HMRC or use their online VAT services through this link: https://www.gov.uk/send-vat-return. 

 

Moving forward. you can electronically file the VAT returns inside QuickBooks. For more information, you can check out these helpful articles:
