When you are required to submit a VAT return we will send you an email reminder. In order to submit your return, navigate to the "Tax" tab in the Crunch app and click "VAT returns":
In this screen you will see a list of your VAT returns. When you are due to submit a return you will 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 will be able to see the VAT to pay on sales and to reclaim on purchases in more detail by clicking "Show details". When you are happy that the numbers look correct, click "Submit VAT return".
In the next screen you will see a summary of all the details pertaining to the VAT return you are about to submit. It is important that you read the declaration and confirm the information within the VAT return is true and complete, by clicking the checkbox, before clicking "Submit VAT return".
You will then be presented with 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".
Once your return has been submitted to Crunch, the team will perform the necessary work to file your return with HMRC. Once this process has been completed you will receive an email containing details on how to pay VAT to HMRC.
