Adding attachments to your VAT Return

In Sage 50cloud Accounts v25.1 a new feature was introduced to help you with VAT audits and Making Tax Digital (MTD). If you need to make an adjustment to the figures on your VAT Return, you can now add supporting documentation to explain the adjustment you have made. 

The attachments can be up to 5mb in size and they're stored with your Accounts data. They're for reference purposes and not submitted to HMRC with your VAT Return.

To add an attachment

  1. On the navigation bar click VAT, then click VAT Return.

  2. If required, to back up your data click Back up.

  3. Enter the date range for the VAT Return, then click Calculate VAT Return.

  4. To add attachments, click Add attachments.

  5. Click Browse, browse to and select your attachment, then click Open.

  6. Repeat step 5 for each attachment, then click OK.

  7. Check and reconcile your VAT Return as normal.
