Hello and welcome to the March edition of the CIM Support newsletter.

The CIM Support newsletter has been put together to collate all supports calls from our customers and partners throughout the month. This gives us the insight required to suggest suitable resources to hopefully assist you in your day to day processing.

Having reviewed the support calls received during February 2022 we have found that the help guides below were the most common topics for Sage50cloud Accounts.

Making Tax Digital checklist: How to ensure you’re ready for MTD in April 2022

This is part of HMRC’s ongoing Making Tax Digital (MTD) plans.

But as of 1 April 2022, all VAT-registered businesses will be required to use MTD for their VAT accounting.

This includes around 700,000 businesses that are registered for VAT but are below the VAT threshold, so may not have considered MTD for VAT before now.

With this deadline approaching, we’ve updated this Making Tax Digital checklist to help all businesses get up to speed with MTD for VAT if they find themselves needing to.
