Sage 200 VAT submission problem

Trying to resubmit to no avail

Didn't find your answer?

Hi,

I'm having issues with Sage 200 and the VAT submission tool and wondered if anyone could help? I'm having problems submitting the Jan-Mar 20 VAT return. The software logs onto HMRC but the period I need to submit for doesn't display as a choice. Yesterday, I submitted all the other later periods just fine but the Jan-Mar 20 still isn't there. I spoke to HMRC this morning to see if there was a flag their end preventing the submission and they said it shows as open and ready so the problem is with Sage 200. I wondered if anyone else has had this problem? I don't want to ring support yet. 

Matt

Just on the off-chance, might it have anything to do with the VAT Portal closing for business earlier today?

Do you have the latest version of S200?

I don't, which I why I am stuck for now with bridging software.

Unsure. But as I submitted the other four quarters without a hitch then I don't think it's a software version issue.

Just had an idea. I could use one of those third party software VAT submission packages. That would ascertain whether it's a HMRC or Sage problem. I used EasyMTD ages ago but I had to buy many credits. Are there any that are PAYG?

There are quite a few MTD software suppliers that offer a free service and you can search for the free ones on HMRC's website here:

Click search now. (the green box)

Just to conclude this story. I downloaded some VAT software and the submission worked. I had our Sage support look over Sage as well and found no problems. I can only assume that the Sage 200/HMRC interface still is glitchy after all this time.
