Hi again Paul,
First thank you for your patience.
I am not sure to really understand.
Our Vat number is recorded since the 1st of December 2017 with a "starting" date from 01/04/2017.
For the period starting 01/04/2017 to 31/03/2018 we have NOT make any Vat return at all. The HMRC has absolutely nothing about our incomes/outcomes. We just, after received a letter, paid an amount - £ 2,927.00 - on telephone banking by card, I suppose an estimate.
So we decided recently to put everything in order, and I am registered since few days on CB.
I imported all our statements, then explained each transactions. Quite easy. Then I went to Report-Popular report-Vat return to see what was on. I validated nothing. At this point I just read and checked all the boxes. Then went back to my statements as few explanations were missing.
You have already understand that my concern is only about that Vat payment made by card as I don't know if the way I imputed it is correct and therefore if it already deduced of the amount showed in Vat return (not validated).
At the moment this amount is imputed like that after choose/explained that transaction, Account code : VAT cash control and VAT : exclude from VAT
ID Date Entity Description Expenditure Income Code Account name
234 08 Mar 18 Bank of Ireland 365 Online hmrc vat paid 2,927.00 7502001 Bank of Ireland
234 08 Mar 18 Bank of Ireland 365 Online hmrc vat paid 2,927.00 8502002 VAT cash control
If I am not wrong that mean that a bill has been created.
And showed like that in Reports-Popular reports- Transactions. Ticked ; All account/heading VAT creditor :
535 08 Mar 18 Bank of Ireland 365 Online hmrc vat paid 2,927.00 (Debit) 8502002 VAT cash control
Do I need to change the explanation of this transaction in my statement, I mean change the account code for : VAT payable and select a rate for exemple 0%VAT.
Sorry to not speak like an accountant.
If I am sure of the imputation of this transaction, I can submit my Vat return online with CB. And to be honest I will glad enough.
Thank you for all your help!
PS ; I don't know if it's permit, but I can sent you my details if you want have a look at my account in CB. If not sorry.
