We have applied to register for MTD but now realize that we have done it too soon. Our VAT periods run from March to May therefore we only need to register for the June to August quarter.
Is this going to cause problems?
After you've signed up for Making Tax Digital, you cannot use VAT online services to send VAT Returns.
This means that you'll need to use your Making Tax Digital compatible software to send your VAT Return for the March to May period.
Thanks for your question.

We signed up on the 7th May - seemed to go alright.
Then submitted VAT return through software on 18th June - seemed to go alright. Even have processing date and submission Id printed on return print out.
Have today received email reminding us that we have not signed up to MTD and need to do so urgently!
This has now been looked in to by our Making Tax Digital team and firstly, please accept our apologies for any confusion caused by the recent email received purporting to the requirement to sign up for Making Tax Digital.
This email was sent with the intention of encouraging those who have not yet signed up for Making Tax Digital to begin the sign-up process. However, the email addresses that the message was delivered to have also included some traders that are not required to or have already signed up for Making Tax Digital.
