I have contacted QB and asked them about MTD and the fact that FRS (Flat Rate Scheme) VAT returns are not able to be submtted digitally via their software. They told me that MTD for VAT does not cover FRS clients, they are initially exempt from MTD, and so, I should continue to use the HMRC portal.
However, when I have looked at the HMRC guidance I can see that the sales data is required to be submitted digitally via softawre not via the HMRC portal. I have asked QB about this but the keep just refering me to their reference pages and not answering the question.
Is anyone else having a similar experience or any better knowledge than me as to whether the portal can still be used or not for FRS?
