AccountsPortal provides for online filing of VAT returns in preparation for Making Tax Digital Monday 12 February 2018 PDF Print Online VAT filing is a huge step forward for our users and we look forward to continuing to work closely with HMRC as Making Tax Digital rolls out One of the UK’s leading online accounting providers, AccountsPortal, now offers its users the ability to file VAT returns directly with HMRC. After running the VAT Report within AccountsPortal, it’s a simple matter of entering your Government Gateway credentials and clicking a button to file. AccountsPortal submits all the relevant information to HMRC. The response is saved against the VAT Report for future reference including important Payment Data indicating whether amounts due are to be paid manually or collected automatically by HMRC via Direct Debit. The new feature is integral to AccountsPortal’s Making Tax Digital (MTD) enablement strategy. MTD is a key part of the government’s plans to make it easier for businesses to get their tax right and keep on top of their affairs. It will require regular submissions of business data digitally via online apps or business accounting software packages.
