Are you ready for Making Tax Digital?

September 7, 2021

Making Tax Digital is here and if you are required to submit through the new gateway you will need to do your first submission in the next 8 weeks.

It is important to ensure you are prepared if you are going to submit through the MTD Gateway.

In order to make submissions via the MTD Gateway, you or your agent will need to register with the HMRC at least 7 working days before the first MTD VAT return submission, further information on this registration process can be found here.

Sage 200cloud Professional

If you are using Spring 2018 Enhancements or above are MTD compliant, however the way the software communicates with the HMRC gateway varies to ensure the best approach for you and allows you to move when you are ready.

Those on Spring 2018 Enhancements or Summer 2018 Enhancements, will need to modify and deploy a file on site to ensure that the product communicates with the new gateway. The file must not be deployed on your site until you are ready to submit through the MTD Gateway. Full details are available here.

Those on Winter 2018 Enhancements or above, will not need to use this file and instead change a setting in the product when you are ready to submit to the new MTD Gateway. Full details are available here.

If you are on earlier versions or if you need to perform group submissions, you will need to use the MTD submission module, the options for each software version are available here. When you are ready to submit to the new MTD Gateway, the module will need to be installed. Prior to that they should submit as usual.
