My Client has not filed vat since July 20 QE.I have set up MTD. Before client was using conventional method which is no more available as signed up for MTd. Now want to file on QB from May 20-July 20. When selecting start of period it gives option of May 21-July 21.
If there are no filed periods in Quickbooks, you can mark as filed a period that starts and ends on 30-4-20. You will need to first of all turn MTD OFF in the edit VAT > edit settings sections. once you have filed all the periods you need to then just turn MTD back on again so when you need to you can then submit the next return to HMRC in the edit VAT> edit settings section again.
So you cant create a VAT quarter in quickbooks as the dates that show in Quickbooks are the dates that get sent to us by HMRC. if HMRC are wanting earlier periods,in order for them to come though you would need to file an older period so that quickbooks looks back far enough for you.
