I have just submitted my first VAT return under MTDV. Thought I'd kick off with my own a quarter earlier than I needed to before going live with clients. Registration etc has been straightforward and the submission itself has been fine. Have printed off the submission receipt but what I am missing compared with the old method of logging in to the gateway, inputting my numbers and submitting is any indication of when the direct debit will be taken. The acknowledgement of the VAT submission you used to get under the old method not only gave you the date of collection but gace the instruction that if you had made the submission on behalf of the VAT registered entity (ie as an agent) you "must print this acknowledgement and present to the account holder/authorised signatort of the account prior to the stated Direct Debit collection date". Has anyone any ideas of how you can get the equivalent of this acknowledgement under MTDV? Just to be clear I can see from my bank that the direct debit mandate has updated to the new reference emailed to me by HMRC as part of the MTDV registration so don't think it's an issue with my set up. So pleased I made my own return a dummy run so I can manage client expectations when I come to do their first submissions!
