Our clients are experiencing that Making Tax Digital is coming apart at the seams.
Why? Well, a number of clients who have submitted their VAT returns, had them accepted by HMRC and paid their VAT bill have subsequently had a letter, like the one shown at the bottom of this article informing them that they have not submitted or paid their VAT.
On further investigation when you ring up HMRC to find out what has happened you are met with an answering machine message which informs you to ignore the letter as they have been sent out in error.
So, (a) if this is your experience, please don’t worry; (b) if you have a Government Gateway access then you may just want to double check that all is ok; and (c) if you are concerned please give us a call to discuss the situation. We would be happy to help and advise.
