How to complete the MTD process with BTCHub in 8 simple steps

In order to make sure the BTCSoftware’s Making Tax Digital Solution worked with the new MTD procedure. We decided to run through with new business from start to finish.

First, they needed to sign up for MTD, this was straight forward with them following the link from HMRC and waiting 72 hours until they receive an email from HMRC saying they were signed up.

Next, they signed up for BTCHub and was up and running within a couple of hours. They can then download the Excel Template we offer with BTCHub.


  1. Using the Excel Template, fill in the tabs with Sales and Purchases:
