I registered a new company for Vat last May (2017) and requested the July/Oct/Jan/April stagger period. All good.
I expected the first Vat Return to be July 2017 or latest October 2017. When I logged in in July it said first one is due in Oct 2017. When I logged in in Oct 2017 it said first one due in Jan 2018. When I logged in in Jan 2018 it said first one due April 2018. When I logged in in April 2018 it said first one due July 2018 ! And so no vat returns have ever been submitted and no vat paid.
I am wondering how long this can continue for and if anyone else has experinced such madness from hmrc.
