As the date for the implementation of MTD for VAT draws closer and is apparently actually happening, is anyone aware of any bridging software available that works with the HMRC API and allows data to be submitted from Excel records? HMRC have confirmed that Excel is acceptable in terms of record keeping, but I am drawing a blank in terms of how that data can actually be submitted via the new Agent Services Account for MTD.
The software houses are obviously conflicted here because they would rather we all put clients onto bookeeping software than provide a method to transmit out of our agent / bureau software. But presumably one of them will have to break ranks at some point. Failing that, is anyone developing their own?
