How to Sign up to Making Tax Digital


Firstly and most importantly.

You must sign up for MTD VAT with HMRC via your government gateway account before you can use any MTD VAT Software.
Please allow at least 3 working days for this to happen.

Please read the following before watching the HMRC sign up video.

  • For your security, during each VAT Return, our system will take you to GOV.UK to login to your gateway account and authorise us to do that Return.
    Lasting authorisation is not needed.
  • During sign up with HMRC, if you are asked to give authorisation to your MTD software please use our application ID of '1 - Bridge'
  • Our system is classed as 'Bridging Software' and is designed to connect your digital records held in spreadsheets to the HMRC MTD VAT system.
  • We only send the 9 VAT boxes, your VAT Number and Return dates to HMRC.
