What is VAT MTD?
From April 2019, HMRC are introducing ‘Making Tax Digital’ (MTD) which means you will no longer be able to key in figures via the HMRC VAT web portal. You may have read that you need fancy accounting software at significant expense to overcome this change
BUT THIS IS NOT TRUE
We provide a service to businesses that enables you to submit your quarterly VAT returns in various very simple ways using Email, SMS text or WhatsApp
KEEPING IT SIMPLE
We are working with an HMRC approved software house that allows us to submit your VAT returns without the need for you to invest in ANY accounting software or MS Excel.
You simply send us the seven figures from boxes 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8 & 9 (3 & 5 are auto-generated), we enter them into our application on your behalf and submit them to HMRC.
Ideally you will email the nine figures to us, but we will also accept SMS Text and WhatsApp messages – we will save your email or message in your account folder for the record.
We want you to concentrate on your core business, not worry about fancy new tech – so we look after the tech side for you which allows you to get on with running your business the way you want to.
IT’S THAT SIMPLE
EMAIL, TEXT OR WHATSAPP
Send us your VAT return data and we will submit it on your behalf to HMRC within three working days
HMRC REGISTERED AGENTS
We are registered with HMRC as agents to act on your behalf once you have authorised us.
Secure & Safe
Security of data is paramount and we apply 256 bit encryption to all your data stored on our system
We charge a small fee for each submission to cover our time, app development and fees.
Once submitted we will send you an HMRC verified copy of the submitted return
NPM are part of iConnik. iConnik develop websites and provide services to businesses, including the design of bespoke Excel spreadsheets for many purposes including accounting. We have acted as an agent for VAT submission for several years for those clients who are not comfortable with using the HMRC VAT web portal.
Our knowledge of Excel and ability to work with software developers places us in a strong position to assist businesses who have limited knowledge, limited time, keep manual accounts or who have bespoke, non-compliant accounting systems.
The MTD requirements would otherwise place yet another burden on business, particularly small businesses, that they can ill-afford. Businesses should not feel obliged to have to invest time and money into systems that they do not feel comfortable with. Our solution is simple and does not require any investment into additional software or time to learn how to use it.
All we require, once we have set up your details, is a written version of the seven figures from your Vat return figures boxes 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8 & 9 (3 & 5 are auto-generated) . We do the rest, allowing you to get on with running your business the way you want to.
