I'm in the process of trying to transfer the VAT number of a client who has incorporated their business.
Previously I would have done this via online services - completed the process completely online indicating VAT number is transferring under a change of legal entity.....however now this client is registered for MTD when I click the change registration details button it tells me I have to make changes using the new ASA account.
When I login here it asks me why this business needs to deregister and gives me three options:
1 - Cease to trade
2 - turnover below threshold
3 - other
If I click other the page diverts me to paper de-reg form which is not what I want to complete!
Do I really now have to complete a paper VAT68 for the sake of digitalising the VAT process??? Seems a bit backwards to me!
