If you are VAT registered, you’ll want to be aware of your VAT deadlines and payment responsibilities. Hefty penalties and fines are waiting for those who fail to do this.
Submitting a VAT return
When you need to submit your VAT return we’ll email you a reminder. In order to submit your return, you’ll need to navigate to the Company Tax tab in the Crunch app and click VAT returns:
In this screen you’ll see a list of your VAT returns. When you are due to submit a return you’ll notice that the status of a VAT return will be Submission due and if you're late in submitting your return the status will read Submission overdue.
On the Options menu relating to your due return, click View VAT breakdown:
The following screen explains the breakdown of VAT for the period of this return. You’ll be able to see the VAT due on sales, and to reclaim on purchases in more detail, by clicking Show details.
When you’re happy that the numbers look correct, click Display VAT return.
In the next screen you will see a summary of all the details of the VAT return you are about to submit. It’s important that you fully read the declaration, and confirm the information within the VAT return is true and complete, by clicking the checkbox, before selecting Submit VAT return.
You’ll then see the confirmation that your VAT return has been submitted to the Crunch team and you will notice that the status of that VAT return in your list is now Submitted to Crunch.
The team at Crunch will prepare to file your return with HMRC. Once this process has been completed, you’ll receive an email containing details on how to pay VAT to HMRC.
