You can set up your VAT to Start the current VAT period to the next quarter filing (E.g. if you need to file from Jan-April, the Start of current VAT period must be June). This way, your VAT is set up for quarterly going forward.
QuickBooks will let you change the start date of the filing period for your first filing. It means you are allowed to file four months period. Once you file your first return, QuickBooks will then follow your filing frequency.
