Hello I have a question regarding the payment of VAT Returns. As a business established in the EU we are registered for VAT in UK. The payment is made via Bank transfer. As reference we always write our VAT number. The problem occurred that the payment for a VAT Return has not been allocated to that specific period. My question is now if we should include the specific period along the VAT Number as reference for the payment. Eg- "123456789 VAT Return 09/22" for the 3rd quarter of 2022. Thanks in advance for a reply DP

Hi,

If you make a payment to HMRC via bank transfer, then only use your VAT number as the reference and not the period.

If you contact our VAT team we can reallocate the payment.

Thank you.
