Forecast 5 Tips and Tricks

Deferring your VAT bill

Forecast 5 is so feature-rich that its difficult to get to know all the functions and benefits. One that might be of interest to those who have big VAT bills is how  in your forecast to put as much time between your VAT liability and when you have to to pay HMRC.

Forecast 5 helps you to get this right!

If you are a monthly VAT payer and pay by cheque, HMRC requires you to settle by 20th of the following month. And if you pay by Chaps, Giro, Bacs, Online Debit or telephone, you are allowed to pay by the 5th or 7th day of the month after the month end, in otherwords, this deferral could be up to 38 days after the the end of the VAT period.

But if you pay by Debit Order, you get an extra 5 days credit from the Revenue with payment only expected 12 days after the end of the month after the period end.

Forecast 5 helps you to budget for this situation as shown in the attached downloadable Powerpoint presentation.

Introducing our IT expert

Jean le Merle

I’ve been in IT for the better part of 18 years.

From a young age I was always interested in the full spectrum of IT, from programming through to the hardware side of things. Over the years, working with multiple companies I became the ‘go to’ family member who was good with computers (a situation every IT person will recognise!)

I trained with a wide range of servers, services and software focusing eventually on Networking, predominantly with Cisco Systems.

I am originally from South Africa but now live in Finland – my wife’s homeland – and have been here for the past 5 years. Although the country’s main language is Finnish the universal language of IT is English which has enabled me to keep doing what I love as well as meeting new and interesting people in many counties.
