Thank you for your post.
My particular query was whether or not I could sign the client up to MTD for VAT, my having been authorised by them in my ASA for VAT, without the client having their own digital account. I was not clear from what you said whether or not this was a requirement by HMRC. What are your views on this? My 'old login details' do not appear to come into it.

Why not use Top Up Tax as gbowyer suggests? You will however have to be able to separately generate an iXBRL tagged set of the accounts to use it. I use PTP Accounts Production (part of Iris) to prepare statutory accounts and this has a pretty effective iXBRL function; cost per annum for up to 10 companies some £150 inc VAT.

The Beta version has now returned. Nothing I have done to make it do so.
Thanks to all for the comments.

All the writings here assume that consent is required for any personal data processing. That is not clear to me.
My understanding is that consent is not required if you are carrying out contracted work for the client. In that case there is not going to be any need for such unless you are doing other things.
I read in the ICO guide that if processing personal data is necessary for a contract you have with an individual that constitutes a lawful basis for processing and separate consent is not therefore required. There are lawful bases other than consent such as legal obligation, vital interests, public tasks and something called legitimate interests the latter of which I do not understand.
My conclusion is that the legislation is mainly aimed at direct marketing and data gathering by those organisations which do this for a living.
Have I misunderstood something here? Are my agreements for work with a client not a contract for some reason?

12.20 (d) of FRS 105 appears to apply.

Thank you for your very clear post. As to your query he was self employed to 31/10/16 but unemployed thereafter and had not registered as self employed so not getting NI credits for that latter period.
The question not obviously answered is 'Am I right?', that is, in assuming that voluntary Class 2 contributions can not be paid for weeks after ceasing to be self-employed. I am assuming you think I am right.

I had a problem with Creators update which failed to update and following that the computer refused to do any windows updates at all saying that it was in the middle of an update. I spent great deal of time trying to make it update, finding on the net that there were a lot of problems with these upgrades. A computer professional (reputable business) told me he had tried to but couldn't fix it and had to wipe the hard drive and start again. That was fun and costly. Thank you Microsoft. So much for Windows update assistant. The online help from Microsoft was useless.

Of the replies so far the one that stands out is 'noone knows'. The rest is speculation and trying to second guess HMRC/HM Government on MTD seems to me to have a poor record. I am simply hanging fire but trying to ensure that compulsory VAT clients are entering the digital world one way or another.
If HMRC know why are they not telling us (and in some detail)?
This has been the case from the beginning, has it not?

Just in case you don't know it, if the only item of value is the stock there is a de minimis amount (see VAT notice 700/11 on deregistration section 7). It is clearly an output for return purposes. The VAT notice is reasonably clear as to how it works and what value means.
