When is my VAT return due?

We may need 10 days notice to prepare a VAT return for you. So please provide your records or ‘go-ahead’ at least 10 days before the deadline.

Quarterly and monthly VAT returns are due 1 month and 7 days after the end of the period. So a VAT return for the quarterly or monthly period ending on 30th June 2022 needs to be submitted by the 7th August 2022. Payments are also due by the same date, however, if you have a direct debit in place it will be taken a few days later.

Annual VAT returns are due 2 months after the end of the VAT year. Payments are due throughout the year but any balancing payment is also due 2 months after the VAT year.
