Hi, I’m attempting to link my MTD Agent’s account to Affinity. Each time I try this the HMRC page asks me to set up an access code to send a text to my phone/tablet etc before logging in. I have never had to do with with my agent account before, personal account yes but not the agents one, it doesn’t look right. When I login normally via the HMRC website it doesn’t ask to set this up, why is this? I don’t want to have to start messing around with text messages if I can help it, I am in and out of my agent’s portal about 10 times a day and it will be a real pain to have to check texts.
Just editing to point out I’m attempting to link my new MTD agent’s account, apparently we need a separate one to file MTD VAT returns, the older one is no good for MTD filing.
