Update: UK MTD-VAT tax reporting from 01.04.2022 for all companies


From April 1, 2022, ALL companies that generate taxable sales in Great Britain are obliged to submit sales tax returns via a “digital link” to the tax authority HMRC. The previous sales threshold of £85,000 will no longer apply!

The MTD-VAT rules so far

As a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, HMRC (His Majesty’s Revenue and Customs – the UK tax authorities) have announced a change to the deadline date for their Making Tax Digital (MTD) regulations for VAT returns to be submitted via a “digital link”. Originally, the deadline was from 2020, but it was postponed to 01.04.2021. Since then, businesses with a turnover over £85,000 must provide a direct digital link from their accounting system to HMRC through which VAT returns are to be made.

Please note, however, that VAT returns must still be submitted on time.

How our integrated SAP solution makes you compliant with the MTD-VAT rules

At PIKON, we’ve created an Integrated MTD VAT Connector for SAP. This SAP Add-On bridges the gap between your SAP ERP system (either SAP ECC or SAP S/4HANA) and the HMRC UK tax authority through a digital link to the MTD platform. The PIKON MTD solution is integrated in SAP and is very easy to implement, stable, easy to use and can be installed in a very short period of time. Today, more than 60 companies are already using the PIKON Integrated MTD-VAT Connector SAP Add-On to fulfil their MTD VAT requirements. More than 100 VAT returns have already been submitted using our MTD add-on.
