This webinar is for anyone already familiar with MTD for VAT and the Agent Services Account. It will cover the latest news on MTD requirements; getting a new Agent Services Account; preparing your clients and signing them up for MTD. We’ll include common questions and do some ‘myth busting’. This webinar will not go over the basics. So if you are new to MTD, you may want to listen to our earlier webinars, 'An introduction to MTD for VAT' and 'More information on MTD for VAT and the agent'.
