Probably  a noob question which I can't see answered elsewhere.


I have started to use QB, with an established business - I'm entering data from 01/01/19 to get the hang of it all (we are a very small VAT registered business)


I've imported all the bank statements, and it all makes (sort of) sense. Our VAT returns are quarterly - Jan-March etc...


My problem is that in Jan 2019 we received a cheque for the Q3 2018 VAT return and in Feb 2019 we paid a VAT bill for Q4 2108.


have no idea how to enter these two (presumably into VAT suspense account), so that it all balances out - as QB has no record of our VAT accounts prior to me first starting to use it (Q1 2019) - and so the 'Taxes' menu doesn't help me at all


As you can tell - I'm not an accountant.... basic assistance would be welcome!


Many thanks
