Don’t leave it too late to register for your Government Gateway Account!
If your business will be required to use the Making Tax Digital service from 1st April 2019 you will need to have a Government Gateway Account set up and ready to use! (If you are not sure whether your business is eligible find out here.)
The Government Gateway Account, otherwise known as your VAT online account, will be the only way that you can submit your VAT returns to HMRC if you are above the VAT threshold (a turnover above £85,000).
As it can take a minimum of 4 – 6 weeks to have your credentials sent through to you for activation, we recommend you register with HMRC as soon as possible if you have not already registered.
