Hello and welcome to the site. Thank you for your question.

It would appear once you have submitted the VAT return online, you can not re submit it.
You are advised to call VAT helpline and draw there attention to an inadvertent error.
The telephone number is XXXXX(NNN) NNN-NNNN

Box 4 covers VAT reclaimed in this period on purchases and other inputs (including acquisitions from the EC)..

I hope this is helpful and answers your question.
