Possibly the best news this side of Christmas?

VT in a change of policy

Didn't find your answer?

In a change of policy, VT will be implementing MTD directly into VT Transaction+ and VT Cash Book (instead of relying on third party bridging software). This feature will be available by the time the first quarterly VAT returns need to be filed under MTD in July 2019.

VT will also be developing an Excel based bridging product for use with VAT groups and other situations where the VAT return cannot be transmitted directly from VT Transaction+.

To keep up to date with MTD, please visit VT’s website at

Subscription costs
The VT Accounts suite will continue to include VT Transaction+. The price of a VT Accounts subscription will remain at £150 + VAT per annum. A premium will no longer be charged in the first year of purchase. A VT Accounts license will be required to use the MTD features in VT Transaction+ as an agent.

For VT Transaction+ only users, the next release of VT Transaction+ will require an annual license key.  The cost of a license key will be £75 + VAT per annum, including support. The new price will apply from 1 February 2019. All existing keys will continue to be valid in the current version indefinitely and in the new version until 30 June 2020. Users without a valid key will still be able to read data but they will not be able to enter new transactions.

VT Cash Book will remain free except that a VT Accounts or VT Transaction+ license key will be required for the MTD features.

Not good news for those who have taken action based on the opposite outcome as previously expressed by VT, including those small businesses that went to the trouble of developing bridging software.

I like my suppliers to be reliable and consistent. Yes, it is good news but very badly handled.
