Making Tax Digital

Columbus recognise that the requirement to submit UK VAT Returns electronically by 1st April will affect everyone in the Microsoft Dynamics Community. To assist our customers and other Dynamics users we have created this portal which gives you advice and guidance on the options available to you to comply with this directive. Whatever Dynamics system you are on we will be able to help!


In order to access the information available you will have to first register. Once registered, advice and guidance will be available as well as details of our VAT Return submission tool if you need it.

Please be aware you may see different period key formats on the VAT DETAILS page than you are expecting. Many will have alpha numeric period keys (e.g. 18A1) and will not have any open obligations for periods prior to joining MTD. However, if you have a fully numeric period key (e.g. 0419) you will be able to see your open obligations for periods both before they have signed up to MTD and since joining MTD.
Due to a now resolved issue with HMRC’s systems we have found some customers may be receiving errors when they are using this application. The error occurs if you have authorised an account on HRMC site and returned to the site later. If this error has occurred to your account it will be necessary to authorise the account again.
