Lovewell Blake: June VAT deadline is fast approaching

Lovewell Blake: June VAT deadline is fast approaching

Jamie Norton, partner at Lovewell Blake, Accountants, Business Advisers and Financial Planners, has advised that the Making Tax Digital deadline for the June VAT return is fast approaching – and if you are not already signed up and registered you need to act fast.

There is currently a potential delay between people signing up to MTD and being able to then submit their MTD return. Once you sign up to file your MTD VAT return you need to wait for a message from HMRC with confirmation that you’ve been signed up, this will also include your VAT number.

Normally this message will be received in 72 hours, however on some occasions this is taking up to 6 days to come through, and until the message is received the return cannot be submitted.

The returns are due by 7 August, so if you have not yet done this, please do make sure you act now.
