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?

No it won't cause problems, you'll just need to start filing through MTD compatible software earlier.

Hi,

That’s correct.

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.

Hi.
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!
Any suggestions?

Hi,

Thanks for your question.

We have raised this with the Making Tax Digital team and will get back to you with an update as soon as possible.

In the meantime, you can check by signing in to your Business Tax Account to see if you have ‘VAT – Making Tax Digital’ as a service in your account. If you do then you have successfully signed up.

If you do not see this service, please call the VAT Online Helpdesk and ask for the Making Tax Digital team and they should be able to check system.

Hi,

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.
