VAT Accounting Dates Don't Match Up


I signed up for Making Tax Digital over a week ago. When I tried to set it up in Quickbooks I get an error message that reads 'The VAT accounting dates don't match up' (see the attached screenshot). Quickbooks seems to think the accounting date is one day later than the HMRC.


I called the number on the error message but the guy on the helpdesk didn't seem to know much more than me about it. Eventually, after some discussion with colleagues, he told me that they were going to request an unfiling of previous VAT submissions with the HMRC. That, he said, should fix the problem within two or three days.

We're coming to the end of the month when we need to submit our next VAT return. I would really like to get this sorted before then. Can anyone help?
