Hello, I'm Keith and happy to help you with your question.
I assume that you have already transmitted the return to HMRC. It's a Dad's Army 'Don't panic!' situation. I assume you mean in the Input and Output boxes at the lower half of the return [boxes 6 - 9]. I would not be over concerned, providing the actual Output and Input Taxes are correctly entered in boxes 1 - 4 [the on line system calculates Box 5 for you automatically].
If you look at the guidance notes you will see that if you inadvertently make a minor error, even in the boxes 1 - 4 area, just correct it in the next quarterly return. It makes it much easier if you just include all expenditure in Box 7, remembering, of course, to split off EU acquisitions in Box 9.
I do hope I have set your mind at rest on this matter.
thank you, ***** ***** already sent 2 Vat Returns.
Should I correct them using the form VAT652, or can I just adjust the amount in the box 7 in the next Vat Return?
I would like to ask, if I have to enrol for VAT EU Refunds, before to submit the Vat Return, because I have some diesel bought from other EU Member States used for business purposes.
To understand better, the company is providing transport services for other companies registered in the UK, but sometimes the services must to be render outside the UK.
I just contact HMRC regarding the Vat paid on diesel while transit the EU countries.
They said I should claim that VAT separately using VAT EU Refund< but when I asked you few weeks ago if I should enrol for VAT EU Refunds, before to submit the Vat Return you gave me this answer:
"No, the forms will come automatically if you have any entries in the EU bits of the form. You use them to confirm reclaim of foreign VAT charged."
I was not worried because your answer and now I have to send the Vat return and I`m still confused.
Please get back to me asap and help me to understand the situation.
Please try to explain to me.
Cam I claim that VAT paid on diesel when transit any other EU countries or not?
