Written by Tina Brands on . Posted in Exact Globe

Before you send your first final VAT return via MTD API, you must ensure that the VAT number (VRN) is correctly defined in the Company data settings.

Go to System ➔ General ➔ Settings ➔ Company data settings. In the VAT number field you must ensure that a purely numeric VAT number has been entered without any spaces. For example, if your VAT number is GB999 9999 73, it should be entered as 999999973 in the VAT number field.

If you have an EN legislation in your license and work in a non-UK environment, then it is necessary to perform an update to product update 416SP17 or 417SP9. This needs to be done due to a decimal error in the MTD submission. Make sure the update has been fully completed.

Regional settings

In addition, take your regional settings into account, especially with regard to the decimal point.
