Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT came into effect from April 2019.

Since then VAT registered businesses are required to keep their records digitally and submit their VAT returns to HMRC using software which is compatible with MTD for VAT.

MATRIX MTD for SAP uses standard SAP technology and, unlike any other solution, offers a completely automated, fully supported and maintained, HMRC compliant solution on a subscription model basis.


OPTION 1 The SAP Solution to Making Tax Digital – two stage manual process

SAP has developed a SaaS cloud based solution on the SAP Localisation Hub and uses the Advanced Compliance Reporting Service (SLH ACR Service) to compile the VAT return. This solution means a user will need to login to a cloud based SAP application to retrieve the data from their ECC system, and then manually submit the return to HMRC – effectively a two stage manual process and requiring a subscription to the SAP Localisation Hub.

OPTION 2 The MATRIX alternative – automated, cost effective, HMRC certified

Mandant has developed a cost effective, fully integrated SAP MTD solution, where the VAT submission to HMRC is made directly from the SAP ECC or S/4 HANA system using standard SAP functionality.

It’s built using our proven MATRIX Cloud Integration Platform, which has been used and trusted by many SAP customers for several years to submit their RTI payroll PAYE data to HMRC, and is now certified for Making Tax Digital with HMRC.

Our customers tell us that our cost effective subscription model makes a refreshing change:

  • a known quarterly fee
  • 24 x 7 support and maintenance taken care of by our SAP integration experts
  • guaranteed performance
  • HMRC approved MTD solution for SAP
  • no manual intervention needed
