  • January to March 2019.
  • February to April 2019.
  • March to May 2019.

(3) Your “current” month in Optimise should be the last financial period in your next VAT quarter. I.e.

  • If your VAT Quarter runs April to June then you should be in your June period.
  • If your VAT Quarter runs May to July then you should be in your July period.
  • If your VAT Quarter runs June to August then you should be in your August period
