Oh dear. How is everyone else faring with MTD?
My issue is that I set up an agent services account, and linked my existing authorised clients to my ASA. None of these clients have activated MTD.
However, a new client had activated MTD (by mistake) and then wanted me to act as their agent. When I went into my ASA I saw I wasn't enrolled for VAT, which meant I couldn't request authorisation of any new clients. Instead I had to enrol for VAT for Agents first... So, I clicked on the various buttons and it asked me to enter a VAT number. So I did, I entered the VAT number of this new client.
Then HMRC sent MY authorisation code for 'VAT for Agents' to my clients address.. The client sent it to me, I've entered it and now I am active for VAT for Agents, but it has their VAT number attached to it in my ASA.
So, my question is this - does it matter that I have this VAT number attached to the service in my ASA? Should I have done things differently? Do I still need to authorise this client in my ASA? Do I also authorise them through my online services account?
I'm confused :-(
