Questions & AnswersImplications for VAT by backdating an invoice and payment
kevin3 asked 4 years ago

Hi, I have invoices for nov & dec 2017 yet to issue but this vat period is already closed and paid. I want to backdate so payments for these invoices are included in 2017 tax. Is this possible or will this cause me a problem with the next vat period?

An easier way to do it is just create the dates of the invoices for that new vat period. Revenue just care they get paid.

So if Jan – Mar is closed create the invoices for April. Otherwise, you’ll need to get your accountant to make a VAT amendment – we don’t do that. But the other option is easier and again they just want to get paid.
