How do I grant authority to file a VAT return to HMRC? Mtd-70

Absolute Excel VAT Filer  

When you first file your VAT return for either yourself or on behalf of a client you have to grant authority to HMRC, this authority only lasts for an 18 month period so if when you are trying to file a VAT return you again get the message it simply means that the 18 month period has lapsed and you will need to re grant permission.

To grant authority you will need to go through the process of submitting your VAT return as per the video and help guide but before the return is transmitted  a HMRC page will appear on screen, simply scroll to the bottom of the page and click the green continue button and follow the on screen prompts.

You will need to follow this process if you are both an individual and an Agent.
