IRIS
It comes free if you buy the other products
Alternative is google

Real life
Good costs money. The good £1 per submission at start of MTD VAT now costs £28 per submission. We now use this just for one legacy client
123sheets is used by a couple of clients, not tried myself
Free is temporary
Prefer good to free myself

We use BTCHub https://www.btcsoftware.co.uk/making-tax-digital/#pricing

Basic level costs £275 per year for 250 VAT return submissions, so works out around £1 per return (or covers 62 clients with qtrly returns) but depends on the size of your practice/client base of course....probably too expensive if you only have a handful of clients you do returns for.

I use www.absoluteexcelvatfiler.co.uk. It isn't free it costs £40 a year plus VAT last time I paid. You can file 10 clients VAT returns for the year for that amount.

When I googled VAT filer several "free" softwares popped up but I didn't look into them to see what was on offer.

www.tax.service.gov.uk/making-tax-digital-software? You could try searching HMRC list there are some free software providers listed.

Quick question, for how many clients?

Try VT. Not free, but possibly worth it depending on the above response

I use Neilson James Technology. It's not free. Agency is £45/50/90/130 for 5/10/25/50 clients. Very good support if needed.

Do you have taxfiler, it comes free with it.

Alternatively, try vat.direct John Hemmings has built it and is a regular contributor here.

We use Taxfiler for our limited companies and partnerships and now use it separately for MTD for VAT via Excel spreadsheets and it works just fine.
