HMRC have advised that some letters for “VAT Notice of Assessment of Tax” recently sent to Making Tax Digital customers were issued in error.

If the business has already submitted the VAT return in question and paid the tax due/received its repayment, they can ignore this letter.

MTDfVAT customers can check their obligation status in MTDfVAT, or check using HMRC Online Services.
