Simplifying the MTD (VAT) Process for Keyloop Users

Magic Tax – Simplifying the Making Tax Digital (VAT) Process for the Motor Industry.

We understand that your business will be facing challenges complying with HMRC’s regulations regarding digital links and connectivity when processing VAT returns.

Magic Tax assists dealerships to overcome these challenges by helping silence the frequent cries of ‘But Keyloop can’t do this’, meaning not only will it save time, remove error-prone manual data entry and the need for manipulating spreadsheet data, but also ensures compliance with HMRC‘s digital record-keeping and digital links regulations.

By using HMRC’s API (Access Point Interchange), Magic Tax connects seamlessly to the Government Gateway by literally becoming the ‘bridge’ between your Keyloop / CDK / Kerridge (whatever you like to refer to it as) VAT Summary extract and HMRC’s system.

How has Making Tax Digital affected the motor industry?

The motor industry is a sector that has always been heavily reliant on paper-based records and manual accounting systems. Many businesses in the industry still use spreadsheets to keep track of their VAT transactions.

This means that transitioning to Making Tax Digital will have been challenging for some businesses.

Under the new system, businesses in the motor industry are required to keep digital records of their VAT transactions using compatible software. They will also need to submit their VAT returns electronically through the HMRC portal. This means that businesses will need to invest in new software and update their accounting systems to comply with the new regulations.

One of the benefits of Making Tax Digital is that it reduces the administrative burden on businesses. Instead of spending hours manually inputting data into spreadsheets, businesses now use software to automate the process of VAT reporting. This saves time and reduces the risk of errors, making it easier for businesses to comply with their VAT obligations.
