MTD VAT applications need to be approved by HMRC prior to use.
Microsoft are currently getting Dynamics Nav versions approved having now (recently) released patches.
Microsoft have only (recently) released MTD VAT related patches as part of the cumulative update program for versions 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.
So these versions once updated for latest cumulative updates and approved by HMRC will be used for MTD VAT.
This needs to be completed by your Microsoft partner - they have the tools to complete this work, we do not. This is a mini upgrade process to implement the full cumulative update. So we do not offer this service.
This will only take time to complete if your version of Dynamics Nav has not been kept up to date on released cumulative update patches. These are released monthly, include (as the name implies) all patches and by and large represent bug fixes. The upgrade is not covered by your current maintenance charges it should be a relatively quick task to complete.
The time taken to apply the cumulative update will depend on the level / number of bespoke changes you have made to your Navision / Dynamics Nav database re tables, forms, pages, reports and codeunits.
1. Assess whether MTD VAT applies to your business. If so......
2. Complete the cumulative update for your version of Dynamics Nav.
3. Register for MTD VAT - yes this does require registration on top of your existing VAT registration.
5. Use! Instructions on use will be found here.
