We have spoken to clients who keep their own books in recent years about MTD but most have chosen, given Government backtracking and lack of a list of definitely compliant software, to wait.
I now want to inform clients more formally and have the following options. Can you confirm if there is anything you feel is missing ....
To keep a spreadsheet and use bridging software to upload your VAT return. Or email the data to us, and we will use bridging software for you. (on a course last week we were told this system can only be used for a maximum 12 months - is that true?) Im in contact with a bridging supplier who will hopefully confirm.
To use our in house bookkeeping service and we use SAGE or Xero, depending on the client and their requirements.
To sign up to a bookeeping package themselves, we can discuss pros and cons of those we have experience of, if they wish.
If they already use a software package they will need to ensure it will be MTD compliant in time.
