invoice dated 31st july to supply us.
HP Agreement was dated 11th August first payment end of August.
i have claimed in July 1/4 not August claimed on the information on the vat invoice not hp agreement
But who queried the reclaim? If you are using traditional accounting then the July quarter would be appropriate, if you are on a cash basis then the August. It really doesn't alter the price of cheeses as my old boss used to say except in your cash flow [important] and the VAT authorities [frankly unimportant.] Either way you will be getting the input tax refunded; that's what VAT is all about.
vat office queried claim yes traditional accounting , yes i know it does not matter either way as it is valid claim just principles at stake here you know what vat are like .
and it would help cash flow now.
Thank you just wanted that confirmed.
