I have just filed my own VAT under the piolet and it went through. After the trauma of doing this now I know it will not work for HMRC and they are making the biggets mistake ever . What are your thoughts ? My reasons are that clients do not understand cloud software or accounts and the chances are they will get it wrong without professional help that will cost them , even if they do pay what benefit is it to them ? Badly thought out - not user friendly and definately not tried and tested as it should be. Can anyone tell me how to proceed as dealing with my own VAT was bad enough now how to deal with clients not even on an accounts package and some not fully aware of whats expected ( and yes I have told them ) ! By the way how can I tell if the VAT return has gone through under MTD when the advice is that the old gateway will receive information but nothing will be done with it. I can see on my business tax acccount that the VAT shows as due ! I cant beleive I am having to put this in Aweb !
