Setting up agents’ accounts for MTD – UK

A number of members have indicated that they are having problems setting up agents’ accounts to be able to file UK VAT returns via the new MTD process. Ruth Corkin is in contact with HMRC on this so please could you let Ruth, ( copy Alexandra Stoicheva ( if you are having problems around in particular dealing with the questions that refer to AML regulations. The issues found are: 

  • HMRC refusing to accept that a member may not be subject to AML regulation (even when evidence produced to show that this is the case) – Ireland;
  • Refusal to accept an AML body regulation and refusing to provide guidance as to what evidence is required - Germany 

Can you please provide details of your country’s AML bodies and whether there are exemptions in your country?
