Connection to HMRC MTD

I am new on Qucifile and I do not know how to connect the single accounts to use MTD.
This is the only function I need.
Any help? I bought a multiple affinity? account…

Hi @alfi82

Do you have an agents account with HMRC and looking to submit returns on your clients behalf?

This are our companies that I am doing the VAT returns.
Just wanted to know if you were able to check our account and see if I missed something.

Hi @alfi82

No problem.

Can I confirm that you’ve enrolled for MTD with HMRC, and received the confirmation email from them? If not, you can enrol by following this guide.

If so, have you linked your HMRC and QuickFile account? If not, you can do this by following the guide, here.

hi @alfi82,

Have you managed to register with HMRC for MTD ok now?

Hi I have successfully completed and sent and have received a receipt from HMRC my first VAT return using QuickFile for MTD. So all good there! Thanks.!

EC sales List is another story. On the above Return there was ES sales made and on the bottom of the completed VAT return there was a button for EC Sales list in green at the bottom . I clicked on that and then a new screen opened up on QuickFile Value Added Tax EC Sales List again with a button in green saying SUBMIT clicked that and it come s back with a pink Failed notice stating as follows;- EC Sales submission to HMRC failed.
By Gateway : Authentication Failure. The supplied user credentials failed validation for the requested service.

So is this something not correct with the system or is it me? I have checked into the old HMRC online system and I can still send the EC sales list via that if that is correct or do we have to go through MTD/Quickfile system? Help please

Hi @Stridey

ECSL is still submitted using the older system rather than MTD.

If you go to the VAT settings (Reports >> VAT Returns >> VAT Settings), you should see an option to enable this, and enter your HMRC credentials for this service.

Hope this helps.

Hi Thanks. So you say ECSL is still submitted using the older system online via HMRC using Government Gateway user ID number. That is how I have had to do this for the ECSL in question.

However I have tried the QUOTE If you go to the VAT settings ( Reports >> VAT Returns >> VAT Settings ), you should see an option to enable this, and enter your HMRC credentials for this service. UNQOTE and it will not recognise my details as on QuickFile the Government Gateway ID isn’t accepted I believe or something else on the QuickFile data required for settings for ECSL?

Thinking about it I have never had success submitting ECSL via the QuickFile system.

What am I doing wrong? I don’t have a user name?
Thanks for any help you can give as I would submit ECSL via quickfie as it will be easier as the data is already entered on the form for submission that way.
