VAT return due date

I have a VAT return to submit for the period ended 28th February 2013. When do I need to submit it to HMRC?

1st April 2013

Normally, you have one month and seven days to submit your VAT return if you file it electronically. As your VAT return is dated 28th February 2013, you have until 7th April 2013 to file it with HMRC.

However, HMRC's VAT online service will be unavailable between 6.00am 4th April and 6.00am 6th April 2013. So I would encourage you to submit your VAT return early by 4th April 2013.

Remember, late VAT returns may be subject to surcharges.
