My client doesn't want to submit their VAT return this quarter and wants to submit everything in the next quarter. I told him it's not as simple as that as HMRC will send an estimated bill if no return submitted.
My client has told me that they don't have time to bring the paperwork to me let alone update Xero with invoicing.
Truth is, they know they are going to get a VAT bill this quarter (this is the second quarter of being VAT registered) but want to hang on for another quarter as there will be more costs to claim VAT back, thus reducing their VAT liability.
Anyone else experienced this with clients and how did you deal with it?
