A choice of solutions to meet your Tax Digital needs

Businesses above the VAT threshold have been mandated to keep their records digitally and submit their VAT returns to the HMRC directly through the HMRC MTD API. VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover below £85,000 are required to follow Making Tax Digital rules for their first return starting on or after April 2022.

HMRC’s requirement is that all VAT return data is digitally linked to the source data so that values in the return can be traced from the ledger (i.e. purchase/sales ledger) through to VAT return completion and upload.

An MTD solution from Professional Advantage will make calculating your VAT return easier and fully auditable. As compliant HMRC software, it meets the HMRC requirement for security and digital submission of returns, while also offering real time inquiry and visibility of information held by the HMRC.

MTD supports an unlimited number of VAT Numbers and VAT Groups, while managing all HMRC API authentication requirements.

We also recognise that tax management can be complex, and in some cases, there may be a requirement for preparation outside of your financial systems, such as for partially recoverable tax, or where source transactions are recorded in other systems.

A system designed specifically for Infor SunSystems users, offering real time, flexible, direct extraction of VAT related values from your ledger. PAMTD maintains journal data integrity across returns and understands SunSystems data structures out of the box. It additionally provides an Excel ‘Add-In’, which allows you to include Excel based data in your return where needed.

PAMTD automates the link between Infor SunSystems and HMRC. The solution enables Infor SunSystems to export data to PAMTD avoiding the need to re-key data and the risk of errors. It also maintains the link between the data provided to HMRC and the source transactions. The key benefit of PAMTD, over Excel spreadsheets, is that it is fully auditable and eliminates costly errors.

PAMTD has depth of functionality and the ability to address more complex MTD requirements, such as the inclusion of Partially Recoverable Tax calculation results from outside of Infor SunSystems and the ability to handle Group VAT.


A standalone solution, allowing returns to be submitted to the HMRC where the data source is exclusively in Excel spreadsheets. Deployed through an Excel ‘Add-In’, it is a ‘bridging’ solution, that enables MTD submission compliance where data has been extracted from the ledger in an HMRC complaint, digitally auditable fashion.
