HMRC Making Tax Digital (MTD) VAT Returns


To use these features you will need to authorise Bookkeeping Today to use the HMRC Making Tax Digital (MTD) service with your company. If you are not authorised yet, you will be prompted to allow this authorisation. This is a quick process that creates a secure link between Bookkeeping Today and HMRC, so they can be sure they are dealing with a trusted web site.

VAT Returns

On this page you can:

  • See a list of VAT returns for the year.
  • See VAT returns for previous years if available.
  • Submit a VAT Return to HMRC.
  • Check the details of VAT Returns you have submitted, including dates and amounts.

Each VAT return in the list shows its start and end dates, as well as the date it was submitted, or the date it is due if it has not been submitted yet.

VAT Return Dates

You do not have to submit a VAT return on its due date. You can submit a VAT return at any time between its end date and the due date. You can submit a VAT return after its due date, but HMRC may apply a surcharge for late payments.
