efileready's VAT e-Filing service offers you a secure and efficient VAT e-Filing facility. After a one time setup of your HMRC online account credentials in our application, you can e-file your VAT returns with ease.The steps involved to e-file VAT data (VAT 100 and VAT 101) to HMRC are as follows
1. Download the respective spreadsheet template from our website.
2. Populate your data onto the spreadsheet and save it as a CSV file.
3. Upload the spreadsheet to our website and we will automatically convert it into an XML file and e-file it for you.
4. Download or print out the successful e-filing certificate.
After the returns have been submitted, the eFileReady Gateway Server will systematically store whatever data or returns you e-filed, together with the response from HMRC including the certificate, for you to view, print or download at any time for up to 3 years. The system will also alert you should any follow up action be required.
The end-to-end process is identical to you logging in to an e-mail system to send an e-mail together with an attached file that you have saved in your system. It really is that simple.
However, there is a striking difference between our system and many others when dealing with your e-filing data. The eFileReady Gateway Server has mirrored HMRC's XML Schema and Business Rules into its system and is capable of validating your data whilst it is being uploaded. If any of your data fails to comply with the Schema or Business Rules we will instantly advise you where and what data errors you have, for you to rectify. We also offer you support to assist you with the rectification. Many other systems can only advise you of your data errors when HMRC's rejection message arrives. Those systems clog up the HMRC Server, leading to considerable delays and frustration. Ours gives you peace of mind with accuracy.
