Over the next few years HMRC will be rolling out access to their APIs (Application Program Interface), this allows developers, such as ourselves, to provide software that has been tested in HMRCs Development environment. There are many APIs available, our focus at Microhelp is currently on CDS and VAT MtD - The former allowing us to migrate users of our CFSP system to the new HMRC CDS API. Our software addresses the requirements of Customs Warehouse users, with the appropriate authorisation, to make declarations relating to the removal of goods from their Customs Warehouse
VAT MtD is the first major push towards digital recording of commercial records and is the system which is aimed at all VAT registered busnesses. Our VAT MtD (Making Tax Digital) solution is currently designed to interface to our accounts and ERP package - we are happy to discuss your specific requirements if your current accounting software is unable to provide the necessary changes.
