This week, HMRC updated the timeline of communications activity on Making Tax Digital for VAT up to 30 January 2023. We are sharing this information with you because we want to support our accountants along this journey as well as we possibly can.
On Thursday 13 October HMRC sent emails to agents to let them know that, if their client’s turnover is under the VAT threshold of £85,000 and they haven’t signed up to MTD in time to file their next return by 7 November, they can still use their existing VAT online account for that return only.
HMRC will be contacting these businesses directly by email on Wednesday 19 October to let them know that they can still use the VAT online account. However, they must use MTD-compatible software for any returns due after 1 December if they file quarterly or monthly VAT returns, or they could face a penalty.
You can view a copy of the emails to agents and businesses for your information below:
