Value Added Tax returns for the quarter ended 31 December 2018 should be submitted by 7 February 2019, and any payment which is due should be made electronically by the same date.
We can e-mail you a green electronic payment advice which gives you the details for making an electronic payment. Green is our standard colour for anything to do with VAT, and in fact we go a step further than this and use apple green for 31 December quarters, emerald green for 31 January quarters and olive green for 28 February quarters so our files are easy to pick out.
If you are having difficulties with paying VAT because other people still owe you money and are taking their time to pay you, then some advice on debt collection may be found at
Any bookkeepers in Carlisle or accountants such as David Porthouse and Co can prepare your VAT returns. If we do this, we will give you a 25% discount on your accounts to reflect economies of scale, since once we have done your VAT return, we don’t have to do the work twice to do the accounts.
