MTD - am I correct?

Registration

Am I correct in the following:

If agent is filing VAT for client, the best route is for agent to regiser client for MTD

If client is filing returns themselves (using sage/QB etc.) they also need to register for MTD even though their software is MTD compliant? I understand this can be done via a link in their software?

Given the first returns are not due (apart from monthly returns) until July and therefore there will be 'Non MTD' returns submitted prior to this date, when is the best time to register for MTD?

You don’t need to Register I thought . Please explain as it goes over automatically and Sage do all the work . They want to increase my charges by 30% . Where is the free software promised .

Bridge it using Vitaltax or Avalara

to name but two.

Plenty of bridging software available around the 40 squid mark.

Then HMRC can swoop in and demand fines/penalties. Kerching!

There are two registrations.
1. Is a registration for MTD (which was called joining the pilot scheme)
2. Is authorising the software that you are using (which means you have to use your gateway account to do this).

Simple, logical, intuitive, well-publicised.

I really think HMRC have done a fantastic job of getting this out into the public domain.

This. My understanding is either client or accountant can do step 1, regardless of who has/will be submitting VAT returns.
Step 2 should be done by whoever will submit the VAT returns, as it is connecting up the software with either the client/their accountant's HMRC portal.

In case it helps (sorry mods if this is deemed advertising), I did a step by step blog post of what to do here https://www.chrismaslin.co.uk/freeagent-tips/how-to-enrol-for-mtd/
