Making Tax Digital scheduled maintenance, 25 November 2019

Nov 25, 2019

HMRC are currently undertaking scheduled maintenance to the Making Tax Digital (“MTD”) for VAT service until 5pm today Monday 25th November.

The scheduled closure, is to enable the release of some additional functionality, including:

  • a repayment tracker for MTD taxpayers to be able to see the status of their repayment;
  • supporting taxpayers to change their business telephone number and web address through our change of circumstances service;
  • allowing taxpayers who have left the service to be able to sign up again; and
  • allowing businesses and agents to view and print copies of their returns through the Business Tax Account

Until 5pm today, taxpayers and their agents will be unable to: 

  • access their Business Tax Account for VAT;
  • update change of circumstances;
  • access Agent Services;
  • sign up to the MTD service.

Please note that the ability to submit through software will still be available. Details of the service maintenance is available on the VAT service availability pages.
