Unable to sign up to MTD for VAT

I am unable to sign up to MTD for VAT. HMRC does not have anymore that option on their site. Instead, they ask new businesses to use an approved software and it will be approved automatically. I did this with quickfile, but you show me the connection has failed because I am not authorised to MTD. HMRC should automatically allow you to send VAT returns to MTD. What can I do to be able to send VAT returns from quickfile? Thank you! Dorel Hava


The not authorised message is being returned from HMRC’s systems.

It may be worth reaching out to them directly to check your status.
