Hi so after a lot of stress and dilema I think I will move manual VAt clients to a simple excel spreadsheet and use a bridging product like absolutes excel filer to comply with MTD for VAT. I'm an excel novice and was just wondering how I would exclude certain transactions (such as drawings, road tax, wages etc) from the spreadsheet for the VAT return? As there has to be a digital link and no copy and paste etc, would it work if items that were not relevant to the VAT return were kept on a separate sheet of the spreadsheet and therefore those figures didn't come in to play at all? I hope that makes sense? Many thanks for the help.
