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.

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.
