Ceasing trade and VAT deregistration

Retail shop ceases trading on 31/03/2011. Final utility bills come in April that relate to March. Date on VAT7 31/03/2011 so final VAT return will be to 31/03/2011.

I'm sure you can put the April VAT on the final VAT return - do you just include it as post-cessation expenses even though the date range isn't right?

Feel like I ought to know this one, but don't, and can't immediately find the answer.

    I would put it on the VAT return.

    If any post-cessation receipts come in after you have done the VAT return (e.g. your fees) then you can make a separate claim to have the VAT refunded.
