I had one and agree with AWeb72. Be warned that if they take on an employee you have to convert the CIS only scheme(called an XP Scheme) to full PAYE scheme which involves the usual painfully long telephone call to HMRC.

I've just filed a non MTD return on the (old) agent's HMRC VAT portal, and it's gone through fine first time.

At the time of engagement all my sole trader clients get a sheet of basic explanatory notes showing how tax is calculated, when tax is paid, and how POAs work. If there is any further difficulty I sit down and explain it with their own numbers.

What the heck is a "numeric period key"?

I signed up my first client yesterday through the ASA. You have to select "Ask a client to authorise you ". (I have pointed out to HMRC that in my mind that does not mean the same as signing up a client for MTD and that they should change the wording). After a couple of emails with links to click, and "send your application" you'll get a screen message to say it has been received. The confirmation email to me came this morning " You've signed up your client for MTD for VAT" which just gives their VAT number, no name. I have yet to tackle the MTD software bit. You have to sign up each client individually.
