We submitted a clients return on Friday. It was the first one under MTD. Can we view the submitted return online in our HMRC account or Agent services account?

Unfortunately there is no facility to view your client’s submission in either the previous agent account or the new agent services account (ASA) once signed up for Making Tax Digital.

If it is simply to view the return in question and the figures you should be able to check the details on your compatible software package in which you filed the clients VAT return. If it is to check and confirm receipt of the VAT return the client should be able to do this via their business tax account (BTA). If they do not have one they would need to create one and enrol for the service.

From your post it would appear that you are a tax agent and this and future posts may be more appropriate to the HMRC Agent Forum.
