This article explains how to set and change the default VAT return lengths in FreeAgent.
Set the default VAT return period length in setup
When you log in to your FreeAgent account for the first time, you’ll be taken through a four-step setup journey.
Step three of this journey asks you to fill in your VAT settings. Select one of the three options from the default VAT period lengths section; monthly, quarterly or yearly.
Changing the default VAT return length
If you have previously selected an option during set up but want to change it later, just follow these steps:
Hover over your company name and select ‘Settings’
From the ‘Accounting, Tax & VAT’ section, select the ‘VAT Registration’.
Next, select your new VAT return length - either monthly, quarterly or yearly. However, please be aware that changing this setting won’t affect historic VAT returns, only future VAT returns.
