"Something went wrong" error message when when click on Taxes-VAT

When I click on Taxes-VAT I can see for a second last period VAT figures  ,  badge Connected to MTD and then everything disappears and error message pops up: "Something’s not working. Give us a few minutes and try again. If it still doesn’t work, call us so we can take a closer look." The same issue has my accountant on different computer. Tried all standard advices like Clear cache, run QB on few different browsers, on Incognito mode- everywhere the same. One week left till VAT return deadline and no  fix from QB support. They blamed HMRC but the same issue happens if I disconnect from MTD.

Taxes- Income tax works correctly.

Anybody had this issue?
