Magic Tax is the perfect solution for small businesses and contractors who currently manage their accounts manually and do not want to sign up for costly subscription-based accountancy packages.
Accountants will be approached by many small businesses looking for help to file their VAT returns and comply with the new legislation. Magic Tax will give them the ability to look after multiple clients on one dashboard.
Larger Businesses (Legacy Systems)
For larger businesses, it’s likely that you are running your business on a legacy system or an older version of your system. Magic Tax is a quick and easy way to bridge the gap between your legacy system that may not comply with Making Tax Digital and the HMRC’s new legislation.
Bookkeepers are likely to be filing VAT returns manually for a number of clients. Now they can manage multiple client’s VAT returns from one easy to use FREE solution. By using Magic Tax, they are less likely to lose clients to accountants too.

Here are just a few of the team responsible for Magic Tax.
Here is a selection of frequently asked questions…
What format should I save the Excel spreadsheet?
You should save your excel spreadsheet in .xls or .xlsx format.
Will the Excel spreadsheet work with my Mac?
Yes. Just make sure you save the spreadsheet in .xls or .xlsx format and it will work just fine.
What support is offered if I have a technical problem in the future?
Should you encounter a technical issue, KFA Connect offer a Jira support portal, which can be accessed here or in the ‘Support’ link in the bottom footer of this website. Simply register for the service and our team will be able to help you with your query.
I’m getting an error message that says: ‘You are not authorised to use this VRN’?
The most likely explanation for this is that you have not completed the sign-up process with HMRC. You must sign-up for Making Tax Digital with HMRC (and wait for the email confirmation from them, which can take up to 72 hours to come back) before you can add a company to Magic Tax.
I have signed up for Making Tax Digital with HMRC, but I am still getting a message saying “You are not authorised to use this VRN”?
You should check that:
You are authorised with HMRC to make submissions for the company – you can check this with HMRC.
You have not de-authorised Magic Tax with HMRC. If this is the case, you must re-authorise Magic Tax to interact with HMRC before you will be able to add a company.
Do I need to wait for confirmation from HMRC that we signed up for MTD before adding my Company details?
Yes. You should wait until you have confirmation from HMRC of your sign-up to Making Tax Digital BEFORE you trying to add a company or submit a VAT return using Magic Tax. HMRC can take up to 72 hours to confirm your sign-up.
Can I have more than one user submitting on behalf of a company?
Yes, as long as they are registered with HMRC and have a Government Gateway User ID and Password to allow them to make submissions for the company – they will be able to add the company to their dashboard within Magic Tax.
I have invalidated my user ID?
Check you are not already registered with Magic Tax. You cannot use the same email twice.
Is it possible for Magic Tax to provide a receipt for the charity donation to Marie Curie?
You will receive an email from Just Giving confirming your donation, but it is not possible for Magic Tax or KFA Connect to provide you with a receipt.
