MTD Lifeline for Legacy bookkeeping Users who don’t support cloud

Following Sage’s decision not to provide older Sage packages with integration Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT solution.

BTCSoftware has some great news, BTCSoftware will offer Sage users functionality enabling you to still use your current Sage package.

The solution will enable Sage users to continue to use their beloved Sage bookkeeping packages and products and comply with Making Tax Digital for VAT via a digital integration with BTCSoftware’s BTCHub.

How will this work for legacy Sage Users?

VAT Return data for Sage bookkeeping packages will import into BTCHub’s MTD solution for VAT via saving a CSV file from Sage’s bookkeeping package.

BTCSoftware’s MTD for VAT Solution is available now.

What does BTCSoftware’s BTCHub do?

  • Enable agents to submit their clients’ VAT returns directly to HMRC in the required MTD format.
  • Enable agents to gather historical MTD VAT return data from HMRC and view it. This helps them to see what has been submitted historically, mainly if they have only recently started acting for the client.
  • Provide a quick online agent-client authorisation process with HMRC replacing (for MTD VAT only) the old 64-8 forms.

Ensuring that MTD for VAT compliance for legacy Sage users who won’t move to the cloud

Business Development Director of BTCSoftware Paul Oldridge “We have had quite a few concerned Sage Users and Developers who have been trying to find alternative solutions to MTD for VAT, so we are delighted to be able to help and provide a cost-effective solution for them.”

Oldridge also added that “we will continue to provide and comply with the MTD for VAT legislation so that users will not have to worry about MTD compliance, as we are an approved HMRC provider. BTCSoftware’s BTCHub solution will enable legacy Sage users to continue using all of the software they love and trust, and at the same time meet their clients’ compliance obligations.”
