Sage have identified a small issue with the VAT return. If you run your VAT return up to the period ended March 2019, the transactions for 31st March are not appearing.

To make sure your calculations are correct when submitting your VAT return, you can download and install an update or follow the manual workaround.

If your VAT return is due to end 31st March 2019, to ensure your VAT return is correct, Sage recommend you download and install the latest update for your software version. The update(s) must be installed on all computers that have Sage installed including the computer that holds you data and any computers that access your data using Sage Drive.
To check your Current Version go to Help then About and make a note of your version number.
v25.0 – Download and install v25.1
v24.2 – Download and install v24.3

Correct the date range
As an alternative to installing the update, when you run your VAT return for the period ending March 2019, you can manually correct the date rang:
1. Click Use custom date range, then click Use whole months.
This changes the VAT period end date to 31st March 2019.
