Is your finance solution Making Tax Digital for VAT compliant?


Making Tax Digital for VAT (MTDfV) is a new legislation that came into force for the majority of businesses in April 2019. It means that any VAT-registered organisation with a taxable turnover above the VAT registration threshold is required to keep digital VAT business records. It involves sending returns using MTDfV compatible software for VAT periods starting on or after 1st April 2019.

Does it affect your version of Dynamics GP?

Does it affect your version of Dynamics GP?

As VAT returns are typically produced within your finance system, you need to ensure that your current solution is MTDfV compatible. As a supplier of Microsoft Dynamics 365 solutions, if you are a user of Dynamics 365 Business Central, you automatically have  MTDfV compliant functionality and will not need to take any further action. If you use later versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP, these became MTDfV compatible with the February 2019 hotfix from Microsoft, which included versions 2016/2016R2 and 2018/2018R2.

For users of older versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP, including v10, 2010, 2013, 2015 and 2015R2, it is likely that your version will not be supported by Microsoft to become MTDfV compliant. But don’t worry as there are options open to you that we can support with.
