Ideas on making agent 2sv work?

Anybody got any ideas on making the agent 2sv work?

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

If you have say multiple staff all intermittently using the HMRC MTD login over say multiple offices around the country and some/most at the same time, how does the 2SV cope?

Looking for ideas on how to make it work....?

Surprised at you asking this question :)
2-Step Verification - the new Agents Services for MTD requirements.
Load of stupid unnecessary work!

2SV, Two Step Verification - for example when you log into your personal email and receive a text message with a code to finish the log in process.

Is 2SV going to apply to agents?
Agent Update 55 (Aug-Sep 2016) said HMRC were not going to use this for agents, has this changed?

In a word - YES.
See my other post replying to OP.

This was explained in the Talking Points Webinar yesterday.
A recording of it will be available in the next few weeks on 'GOV.UK using the link on the agents digital meetings, webinars and videos page' according to the Q&A email I received. Too detailed for me to explain to you and goodness knows how this is going to work for large practices!

Yeah read the bullet points hence my question :-0

Just can't see how its going to work in our office with multiple users especially when our other offices get merged on one digital account...

We are assuming here that HMRC will expect us to go through our software re queries once/if they sort their API's...

Oh sorry - note to oneself: read question properly!
I really don't know how HMRC expect this to work as there is so much wrong with their present systems etc.
All I can say is MTD with HMRC will be NFG.

Here is what an article by CCH said yesterday:

Agents will have to create a new Government Gateway credential, which will be able to be used by everyone at agents’ firms and will supersede existing ‘legacy’ systems, with all HMRC interfacing taking place under the auspices of the one account, HMRC said.

The new system will be able to transfer agents’ clients once they commence using Making Tax Digital themselves, whether through a pilot or through the wider rollout.

Agents will only need the one account for their whole firm, even if they are spread across several offices, HMRC said.

‘A mapping process allows an agent to link their existing agent codes to their Agent Services Account,’ HMRC said in a Talking Points webcast to nearly 1,000 stakeholders. ‘Using this process agents won't need to re-authorise clients to see their Making Tax Digital data, HMRC will have the information it needs (the agent code) to honour the authority already granted by clients.’

The timeline for the rollout will see a ‘small number’ of agents invited to subscribe to Agent Services (AS) during April, May and June, part of what HMRC describes as a ‘controlled go live’ of Making Tax Digital for Business. Additional agents will be able to subscribe to Agent Services using commercial software from the summer of 2017 onwards.

I think they canned it for agents as unworkable.

The text message thing that is.

Cant even get a mobile signal in my office so its would be a fat lot of good.

Well, it looks like they have found the can opener as it appears to be on the menu again!
