Q. I’ve not completed a VAT return via Sage 200 before?
A. You will need to create a dummy return for the quarter or month prior to beginning Making Tax Digital.
Q. Should I stage early?
A. There are criteria for staging early, once you stage there is no possibility to reverse this.
Q. I’m part way through an upgrade, do I need to worry?
A. It’s important you work with us that infrastructure (e.g. server) is ready and that you dedicate time to the upgrade project. We are scheduling customers according to their first VAT quarter deadline.
Q. I’ve already upgraded. What next?
A. Refer to our step by step guideline outlined above. If you would prefer a consultant to help with 1st Making Tax Digital return then your account manager can arrange this either as a remote session or on site.
Q. I’ve not agreed to upgrade. I don’t have Making Tax Digital compliance. What do I do?
A. We will endeavour to accommodate you as the deadline approaches. Please discuss with your account manager as soon as possible. You may need to purchase Sage’s Making Tax Digital tool if an upgrade cannot be achieved in time.
