CIOT and ATT highlight first wave of HMRC MTD for VAT encouragement letters
Released 7 November 2018
The Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT) and Association of Taxation Technicians (ATT) are highlighting HMRC’s first wave of Making Tax Digital for VAT encouragement letters.
During the week commencing 5 November 2018, HMRC started to send out their first wave of what they are calling “encouragement letters” to businesses within the scope of Making Tax Digital for VAT. The letters are being sent to businesses which are currently eligible to join the pilot. They are not being copied to the businesses’ agents. The first wave is 20,000 letters and, following a pause to monitor their impact, a further 180,000 letters will be issued the following week (commencing 12 November). There are two versions being used, again to enable HMRC to monitor their impact. Both have the same core message but are written in slightly different styles.
