COVID-19 - Deferral of VAT payments

The UK government has announced that there will be a deferral of VAT payments falling due between 20 March and 30 June 2020. This is part of a package of measures to support businesses during the Coronavirus pandemic.

The deferral will apply automatically to UK businesses and no application is required.

For businesses on quarterly VAT returns, this will generally mean the deferral of one quarter’s VAT:

  • the payment due on 7 April for businesses with a VAT period ending February 2020;
  • the payment due on 7 May for businesses with a VAT period ending March 2020; and
  • the payment due on 7 June for businesses with a VAT period ending April 2020.
