Andica MTD VAT Software is an Excel spreadsheet bridging software that enables Businesses, Book-keepers, Accountants and other organisations to link their Microsoft Excel spreadsheet containing VAT transactions into the software and extract VAT 9-Box values to submit periodic VAT returns digitally to HMRC's MTD VAT system.
Making Tax Digital for VAT legislation requires VAT registered businesses with turnover above the VAT threshold to keep records in digital form and file their VAT Returns using MTD functional compatible software.
While Making Tax Digital for VAT (MTD VAT) is a digital record keeping and VAT Returns filing requirements for VAT registered businesses, HMRC recognise that many Businesses and Accountants use Microsoft Excel to process VAT transactions. Andica MTD VAT Software provides facility to extract VAT 9 Box values and submit to HMRC. Software interacts with various HMRC's MTD VAT APIs (facilities) as described in the Features page.
Submission of VAT return can be accomplished in simple routines within the software.
Andica MTD VAT software does not enforce any specific format in which a customer should record transactions within an Excel spreadsheet. As long as the spreadsheet contains all the necessary transactions for a VAT period and there is a single 'Sheet' where the VAT 9 box values for a VAT period have been summarised, this will be sufficient for the software to extract that information. Customers can then use the mapping feature to integrate and extract VAT values into the software.
The transfer of data between Excel spreadsheet into the bridging software must be carried out digitally. According to HMRC, transferring data manually within or between different software is not acceptable. In short, you cannot manually type in the values within the VAT boxes of the bridging software.
