The error that you may see while setting up your company is the following:
This error usually means that your digital tax account is not yet fully ready for 'Making Tax Digital'.
This issue arrises when we check your tax obligations with HMRC, without your tax obligations we cannot submit your VAT return.
- Check that your VAT Registration Number is correct.
- Check that your Government Gateway account is the correct one if you manage multiple companies.
- Ensure that you have received the confirmation email from HMRC letting you know that you're all set for digital tax - this can take up to 72 hours after you've registered to come through.
If all of the above do not work, please get in touch with the Making Tax Digital team at HMRC, they will be able to check your business tax account to ensure that everything is setup correctly.
