Re: Business Covid VAT question

I submitted the return back in march but then cancelled the direct debit.
I've since reinstated the direct debit, which they took in June for that quarter but they obviously haven't taken the quarter before.

I'm just not sure whether I need to pay them or they will just take it.

Business Covid VAT question

When this virus hit our benevolent masters decreed that we didn't need to pay certain VAT bills until March next year.

I pay by direct debit, so will they just take it as and when they need to at the end of march or do I actually need to make the payment?

Re: Season record.

Only two victories where we've conceded. Obviously if you don't concede then you don't lose, but if we concede then we don't win, generally.

I'd rather Villa go to be honest. I think Watfords days are numbered, if not this season then next, but Villa could potentially be much better next season with a new manager, and I think they've got **** loads of money.

By castling the king ends up in c1 and the rook in d1 - by moving the knight back to b1 you are just adjacent to the king - unless I'm misunderstanding what you mean?

The rules for castling require no pieces betwixt the rook and king and that both pieces are in their original position - if the knight is in a3 then it's no longer between the two - unless I misunderstand you?
