Making Tax Digital for Business (MTDfB) is the government’s policy to move all business-related tax reporting online. From April 2019, this means that businesses will be required to make, preserve, and then submit the existing VAT records electronically. To meet the submission obligation HMRC will require you to connect to HMRC’s systems using an approved application programming interface (API).

To meet the 2019 obligation HMRC will require you to keep VAT records using 'functional compatible software', meaning one or several software programs which can connect to HMRC's systems using an approved application programming interface (API) such as our PwC VAT eFile spreadsheet solution or our more sophisticated software solution which meet the most complex of VAT accounting and compliance needs in addition to the API filing requirement.

Guide:

To bridge the gap between any spreadsheet based VAT return and HMRC, to submit VAT returns, PwC has developed an Excel based tool that enables the necessary API.
