Exemptions guidance

HMRC has updated VAT Notice 700/22 to cover exemptions from MTD and included an outline of the process for application. The relevant part of the Notice is Section 3.

MTD software

HMRC has launched the first iteration of the VAT software choices viewer with a filter function, allowing the user to filter products according to criteria such as:

  • whether the product is for a business and/or agent
  • what features the products has (such view VAT returns, check what VAT you owe)
  • whether it’s bridging software or full digital record keeping.

There are now over 200 MTD-compatible VAT products available. HMRC will continue to improve the filters in order to further enhance the customer experience.

Step-by-step guides

HMRC has produced an Agent step-by-step guide and a version for businesses.

AAT holds numerous MTD-related events across the UK, providing information, insight and updates and a chance to pose questions on one of the most important changes to the British tax system in a generation.
