HMRC Planned Downtime 14/15 March – Making Tax Digital for MTD

Magic Tax will be out of action this weekend due to HMRC’s scheduled maintenance.

We have been informed by HMRC that they are planning routine maintenance to their Making Tax Digital for VAT service this weekend.

HMRC’s planned routine maintenance to their system will also affect the Magic Tax service so we suggest not trying to log in or use the system during the dates shown below:

Saturday, 14th March 2020 from 17:30


Monday, 16th March 2020 at 17:00

HMRC have advised that during this period the following services will be affected:

  • Agent Service Subscription
  • Agent Authorisation
  • Submission of returns
  • Business Tax Account View & Change
  • Direct Debit

HMRC have also pointed out that between 23:59 on Saturday the 14th March to 02:00 on Sunday the 15th March the “Sign Up” service to Making Tax Digital for Vat will also be unavailable.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

The Magic Tax Team.
