In February I set up an agents account and connected a client that has given authorisation. This was a lengthy process as a few things didn't go smoothly.
Online the Agent Account exists - though I don't see the clients details and do not have access to access to add a service.
I've now tried submitting the clients VAT return through MTD but it states either the client or Agent isn't authorised. But they are.
The old agent online access states I must use MTD as the client is authorised to do so.
I now have no way to submit the clients VAT return.
I've called many times and after going through the lengthy phone system I'm told by the machine no one can take the call as itstoo busy. I've submitted faults online 5 days ago and no one has come back to me.
I see no way forward with this and no support forthcoming. I've tried every online route I can find and keep coming to a dead end. Due to other commitments I'm running out of available time to submit the Clients return. What happens if I'm unable to submit?
Should I design my own excel spreadsheet version of the VAT return and put it in the post like we did 25 years ago?
There's clearly something wrong with the set up of my agent account or the client that should be linked....who can help when the phone line is too busy to take calls and the online log is now 5 days old and no-one has called?
I'm not normally a negative person but I'm so fed up of how much of my time this process is taking.
