VAT Reports List - Default Sort Order

By default when opening the VAT reports page from the reporting menu the oldest report is at the top of the list and the rest follow in chronological order. This hasn't caused us a problem until now, but because we have now generated our 26th VAT return on Sage this now appears on the second page. I don't really care anymore about our VAT returns from 2016, and so it would appear to be far more sensible if the default sort order for the list of VAT returns had the most recent at the top. Most people will only be concerned about the current period that they are working on and possibly the previous one to ensure that it's been received and paid.

Hopefully this is a simple change as the current situation is frustrating.

    Yes yes yes! I can't believe this isn't already the default order. Who really needs ancient vat returns at the top of the page?!
