To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what steps his Department is taking to support businesses to adhere to changes to VAT reporting from 2019.
Answer (Mel Stride)
There will be a range of support available to help businesses prepare for VAT digital reporting in 2019. HMRC has been working closely with software providers, business representative bodies and the accountancy profession to ensure the right support is in place to help businesses adapt. The customer support model will guide businesses to the most appropriate help including technical support, webchat, YouTube training videos, webinars, helpline and agent and business guides. A pilot will start in Spring 2018 to test the system, including the support model, well ahead of April 2019.
