CORONAVIRUS – Deferral of VAT due on February 2020 returns
Quarterly VAT returns to February 2020 should be lodged with HMRC as normal by 7 April 2020.
The Chancellor announced on 20 March that VAT payments due between 20 March and 30 June 2020 could be deferred until 31 March 2021. You do not need to apply for this deferral, just don’t pay the sum due.
Please note though that if you normally settle your VAT liability by direct debit then you will need to cancel this with your bank, far enough before the due date to stop this being collected automatically.
