VAT return pending

Hello Mday1, 


Welcome to the Community page, 


Did you receive the email from HMRC stating it was accepted? If not it could still be being processed. If it still doesn’t show as accepted tomorrow if you ring the support line on 0808 234 5337 and provide them with your vat registration number the agent on the phone will be able to look in the system and see what it is saying for you.
