No way of checking unsubmitted VAT periods on new VAT report

Unfortunately with the new update of the VAT report, it appears you are now unable to create a report for reference on periods you have not previously submitted to HMRC via KashFlow. Having used KF since 2017-18, but not submitting the VAT reports through it until 2018-19 I am now unable to check the VAT report for the previous year. The ability to do this is essential for any corrections we need to create in the current year for that period.

    I would also add the new detailed report whilst very pretty is absolutely useless for anything.

    The old report whilst needing a little tweak in excel to get in a printable state was very good. One client was 5 pages last quarter, the new report 24 pages!

    The main problem is not having net and VAT for inputs and outputs side by side, this is essential for checking the VAT return but impossible on the new improved" report.

    I sometimes wonder if bookkeepers or accountants have any input in the design process!

    I know with MTD VAT figures need to be locked down, but if you notice a transposed invoice number or misspelt description you can no longer amend short of raising a credit and re-entering the invoice, so much for progress and MTD making businesses more efficient!!


    And why is spell-checker flagging misspelt - that is ironic!
