I just noticed this: https://community.intuit.com/articles/1713095-quickbooks-desktop-vat-e-f... "If you are on QuickBooks for desktop 2016, 2017 or 2018 you can continue to e-file VAT as usual. All supported versions have been updated to enable customers to e-file VAT in the usual way ahead of May 2019."
Am I misunderstanding that? Is it actually saying that QB desktop will be MTD compliant? It doesn't seem like Intuit to be so on-the-ball and generous; I was expecting a forced upgrade at least.
