Resubmit failed VAT Return?

editSubscribe (0) ShareShare
Posted on by 10

Good evening all, 

We have mistakenly submitted our VAT return whilst the 'Enabled' checkbox was unchecked in VAT Report Setup>Making Tax Digital. As such our VAT submission did not go through to HMRC. We have spoken to HMRC and they confirm that no submission has come through, although they can see that we have attempted it. 

Is there a way of retrieving the closed off VAT period and re-submitting it?

Secondly, we receive this error when running a VAT return: Not possible to submit VAT return. Reason from the HMRC server: Invalid request netVatDue should be the difference between the largest and the smallest values among totalVatDue and vatReclaimedCurrPeriod (path /netVatDue).

The error seems to be related to either rounding or signage, has anyone else experienced this error, and if so what did you do to overcome it?

We are using Business Central SAAS V20.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
