Signed up for Making Tax Digital and yet to receive a confirmation email?

Jul 29, 2019

HMRC have advised that it is taking longer than usual to send confirmation emails to customers signing up for Making Tax Digital (MTD) – but no action is needed. HMRC are advising that those affected should not try to sign up again or attempt to submit a return until the confirmation email has been received, which should be within a few days.   Read the note from HMRC.

“We are aware that we are taking longer than usual to send confirmation e-mails to customers signing up to Making Tax Digital. We are contacting those affected to advise them that there is a short delay in finalising their sign up and that they should expect to receive their confirmation in the next few days if they haven’t already.  In the meantime there is no need for them to take any action and they should not try to sign up again or attempt to submit a return until the confirmation email has been received.” 

END OF UPDATE

By 7 August, UK businesses required to use MTD for VAT from 1 April 2019 will be due to submit their first quarterly VAT return under MTD for the quarter ended 30 June 2019.
