At the end of your current VAT period, ensure that you have added your relevant VAT treatments to all transactions in that period, and add in any transactions outside of your Starling bank account. You can do all of this within the “Bookkeeping” section of the toolkit.
Once the VAT period ends, you will be able to see a button that says “Finalise” on the calculation for that period in the VAT tab of the toolkit. Click through to finalise, where you will be able to see all 9 boxes of your VAT return. Click on each box to review the transactions that make up that calculation.
Once you confirm that you are happy that the information is true and complete, you can submit the VAT return to HMRC.
Once you have submitted a VAT return to HMRC through Starling’s software, you will not be able to edit the transactions within that period for VAT purposes. However, you’ll still be able to edit the tax treatment of various transactions.
