To ensure businesses transition smoothly to the new Making Tax Digital (MTD) system, CPiO is committed to helping customers adapt their technology to assure its compatibility with the HMRC software.
A free of charge MTD module will be made available for the latest version of all Sage ERP products.
Sage 200 2018 Spring Edition: a solution will be provided for Service Pack 2 (SP2) and all future releases.
Sage will deliver these solutions to a timescale whereby customers can assess the most convenient time to upgrade.
However, we understand that not all customers using previous versions of Sage 200 will be in a position to upgrade before April 2019. With this in mind, the module can be applied to Sage 200 2011 and above with an associated cost.
In order for the MTD tool to be functional, accurate VAT Returns must be created in Sage 200, which is a standard module within all versions of Sage 200. The MTD module uses the Sage 200 VAT Return data for the HMRC submission. We would therefore recommend that you have this process implemented in time for your penultimate VAT Return prior to the April 2019 deadline. This VAT Return, which could be as early as December 2018, would be used as a test submission to ensure that accurate and valid data is being used.
We will support our customers every step of the way and continue to work closely with HMRC to guide you in your move to Making Tax Digital compliance.
