Is it true that MTD for VAT bridging software is just a temporary solution?
Making Tax Digital for VAT bridging software is not a temporary solution. Here's what HMRC have to say:
MTD Developers Newsletter:
"While we welcome all of your assistance with raising MTD awareness we have also received a small number of complaints about some developer material suggesting that bridging products will be unsupported after 2020. This is incorrect, we have no plans to stop supporting bridging solutions."
Direct email in reply to a question asking if bridging software is only a temporary solution until April 2020:
"We couldn't remove bridging products that quickly even if we wanted to. It would require giving business notice that they have to change the way they file."
