SliQ Invoicing supports MTD for VAT allowing you to use HMRC's online API to view your open and fulfilled VAT obligations and submit VAT returns.

SliQ Invoicing's MTD for VAT feature calculates your VAT sales figures from your invoices while allowing you to enter your purchase VAT figures to complete your VAT return.

To submit a VAT return, SliQ provides an easy to use wizard that steps you through authorising SliQ to make submissions on your behalf, getting your VAT obligations from HMRC, choosing which invoices or payments to include on the VAT return then making the submission.
