I entered incorrect vat code 0% ECG on sales in past 3

This answer was rated:

Hello,I entered incorrect vat code 0% ECG on sales in past 3 months but it was supposed to be 0% RG on sale as the goods did not leave UK, it was bought via Too Good Too Goo app which is registered in Denmark.I already sent vat return so i will change vat code to 0% RG so i will have an adjustment in box 8 of minus £10000 on next return becase we do not sell anything to EU. Do i need to fill Fill in form VAT652 to show that box 8 was adjusted? Good are 0% vat so it did not make any difference for vat.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I am here to help you. I am reviewing your question and will respond to you shortly.
Many thanks

Thank you for your question.

It appears the error is in value of supplies to other EC member states.

You would use Form 652 to notify error made in previous VAT return.

You can include the net value of the adjustment in the VAT return for the period of discovery if the net value of the errors doesn't exceed the greater of:

• £10,000 or

• 1% of the box 6 figure required on the VAT return for the period of discovery, subject to an upper limit of £50,000. If you've included, or intend to include, the adjustment in the VAT return for the period of discovery then you should select ‘Yes’ in the field marked ‘Adjusted in VAT return’ to indicate this.

More information on Form 652 can be found here

thank you, the only difference will be in box 8 as it was 0% sale so after changing EC vat code to z vat code, it does not give any vat due on this sale, shall i still send the form to be save?

Thank you for your reply.

Personally, I would for completeness in case HMRC were to carry out an audit of your VAT returns.
