Ok for some MTD clients who have recently (before submissions due date 7/4/2020) cancelled the direct debits we now have the option within our old gateway to set the direct debits back up again - thats great. Basically the previously available method has been restored as it was before it was taken away for MTD cleints.
However some clients don't have the available option and i can;t work out why? - i don't know if its a timing issue , a different banks work differently issue , whether anything to do with old pre mtd direct debits affects anything or its just random hmrc no answer as to why i can setup direct debit or not.
I think i may be in trouble with clients who don;t have their own gateway as i have heard rumours paperr direct debit applications have been returned.
I spoke to vat webchat and they outright denied that i would be able to setup any direct debits anymore, so perhaps the re introduction of our ability to setup direct debits for some clients is a random error they havent spotted yet.
Any useful pointers anyone?
