The way VAT returns are filed has now changed, as part of Making Tax Digital.

This means you need to keep digital business records, sign up to Making Tax Digital and file all future VAT returns using Making Tax Digital-compatible software.

If you do not file your VAT returns through Making Tax Digital, you may now have to pay a penalty. Even if you currently keep digital records, you must check your software is compatible and sign up for Making Tax Digital.

If you have not signed up to Making Tax Digital yet, you need to do so before you file your next VAT return, otherwise you could receive a penalty.
