Bank Transactions Download to CSV file - Payments given Negative Values

Last Updated 2 months ago

If you have downloaded you bank transactions to CSV file, it is likely that the payments are shown as negative values. This could create a problem with the VAT Return – but don’t worry it is easily solved.

If your payments are shown as negative numbers, then you need to change the values that you link into the VAT Return into positive numbers.

The simplest way to do this is to type “– “ when you link the number to the VAT Return (ie type a minus sign). Therefore type - instead of + or = when you are linking to the VAT Return. This simply turns the – into a +.

And that’s the problem solved.

Please see also Negative Numbers and your VAT Return for additional information.
