Hi sharron2306,

 

I can certainly help you here.

 

You can certainly file a shorter period for your VAT. To do so, you would click on Submit Return within the Taxes tab and change the End Date to the desired date for your shorter filing.

 

Moving forwards, simply update the VAT year to match the start of your financial year to ensure QuickBooks calculates your VAT quarters correctly. You can do this by going to Edit VAT > Edit VAT Settings from within the Taxes tab and selecting the appropriate month from the drop down menu under Start of Current VAT Period.

 

This will then calculate your VAT Filing Quarters in line with your Financial Quarters for you.

 

Let me know if you need anything further. Alternatively, you can also contact us by phone, email or chat should you wish to go through this in real time. Details of how to contact us can be found here along with our opening hours.
