HMRC decommissioned the old version of their VAT portal on the 14th of February 2018. The Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is no more, leaving older versions of Sage 50 unable to make online submissions directly.

Are you affected?

Only Sage versions 24 and above have been updated to use the new HMRC Government Gateway. If you have older versions of Sage software you will be unable to make submissions including VAT Returns, EC Sales lists, CIS Returns, RTI submissions, IR secure mailbox and CIS subcontractor validations. You will need to consider upgrading to the latest version.

We can help…

This frustrating move by HMRC and Sage has been made in the build-up to the launch of Digital Tax next year. This revolution in the way that tax information is submitted is potentially the most radical change the system has undergone EVER. We are getting ready and are recommending our clients move to a Cloud Accounting system sooner rather than later.
