VAT Returns

Setup your company for VAT Return submission

Before we're able to access your HMRC details, you'll need to link MTDsorted to your Government Gateway account.

We will never ask you for your Government Gateway ID or password - do not share this information with anyone including us!

Navigate to your company configuration - this is found by clicking your company name in the top navigation.

Then click on the 'Government Gateway' tab.

Click the 'Click here to get started' button on that page, you'll be redirected to HMRC to sign in to your Government Gateway account.

By signin in to your Government Gateway account you'll give MTDsorted access to view your Tax and submit VAT Returns on your behalf - this will be valid for 18 months.

Once you've been redirected to MTDsorted from HMRC, you'll have successfully linked your Government Gateway account.

You'll need to make sure your VAT Registration Number has also been configured for your company. You'll find this in the 'VAT Returns' tab in your company configuration.

Once both have setup, MTDsorted will automatically try and sync your VAT obligations and payments from HMRC.

You'll also be ready to submit your VAT Returns with MTDsorted.
