Making Tax Digital scheduled maintenance, 16 November 2020

Nov 16, 2020

HMRC is currently undertaking scheduled maintenance to their digital services in order to deliver additional Making Tax Digital (“MTD”) for VAT functionality.

The following MTD VAT services are unavailable from 4.30pm Saturday  14th November until 5pm Monday 16th November:

  • submit returns;
  • view your previous submissions and payment details;
  • set up new or cancel and amend existing direct debits; and
  • review and update any business details

This planned release includes a new VAT Registration Service which is designed to provide taxpayers with an easy way to register and subscribe to VAT, obtain a VAT Registration Number (VRN), and sign-up to MTD.

Do you use HMRC online services? Don’t be caught out by the planned downtime to some services. This and other planned maintenance and upgrade activities are shown on the HMRC service availability and issues page on GOV.UK.
