For organisations looking for support with Making Tax Digital

Since HMRC introduced Making Tax Digital (MTD), most organisations have to provide VAT information to HMRC through their new portal with MTD compatible software. It is also essential that VAT returns created in an organisations ERP system are kept digitally for ease of VAT audits.

Single MTD entities

Some versions of Dynamics such as Dynamics AX 2012 R3 (requires an update) and Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations have received updated capability to comply with the new requirements. However, for previously unsupported versions, you had to source your own solution.


For VAT groups, Microsoft does not offer an upgrade for Dynamics users to submit their VAT group registration. This means that all organisations with VAT groups registrations will require to purchase new bridging software to submit VAT returns.
