We’ve worked with Rhino Software to build an app designed to help all small businesses and the self-employed in the UK to become MTD compliant without the confusion and pressure.

The Rhino team derive genuine satisfaction from dissolving traditional corporate hierarchies and boundaries and generously and patiently giving his time and expertise to help the customer. Following their assistance, I have successfully submitted my first MTD VAT return. I have also gained a simplified and streamlined VAT return process. Thank you Rhino and thank you FSB for delivering another great partnership which really benefits members!
Stella Rose-Williams – The Leadership Artisan
I find the services offered by Rhino and the support and advice offered by the Rhino team just brilliant. It is so easy to add invoices and expenses to the system, has saved me a great deal of time. I completed my first VAT return using the new Rhino system with no issues. As an FSB member I look forward to having a long term relationship with the Rhino team, and I would highly recommend the system to new and excising businesses.

I have been using the Rhino App now for over three years and I find it very easy to use, saving me time when collating figures. The layout is easy to understand on mobile devices and computer screens which makes it ideal for use both in the office or if you are on the move.
It is my ‘go to’ tool for accountancy and VAT.
Phil Sidney – Accountant
Just to say I’ve been doing my vat returns for the past 3 months through Rhino, and really getting to grips with it!!
I literally love it – it’s changed my world and I’ve recommended it to everyone I know!

Rhino’s team combine cutting edge technology with offline charm and personal service.
Their commitment to excellence at all levels speaks volumes for their product and for their personnel. Take a bow folks.
Michael Hughes – Irish Art Group
As a creative person, I find accounting really stressful. I used to constantly make mistakes and become muddled with my invoices and expense receipts. I have been using Rhino for a few years and I find it really easy to stay organised and to have a system that also shows me how much I make each month helps me to feel much more like a proper business person. Also – the support is always there – which is so important for a technophobe.
Nicky Moran – Coach and Trainer for Creatives, London
I would like to thank you for the last 3 years. As a self employed sole trader, using Rhino has made my life so much easier. I use the software daily for expenses, estimates and invoices. The accessibility of the software via the app is incredibly useful for on the go tasks. It pays for itself within a few clicks in terms of the time it saves and the customer service I have received is just incredible. Have recommended this app to many and will continue to do so!
Kevin Cochrane – Arisaig Electrical Services
I invoice people, enter my expenses and it keeps a tally. I then make final amendments and can submit it. It’s all done in half an hour.
I used to have to put a couple of days aside for going through all the payments and financial documents, but now it’s all on there and my accountant has access to it as well.
Jonathan Gale – Epic Design, Devon
As an experienced user of many of the larger accounting products, I was looking for something that would do more than just accounting. The Rhino App gives us visibility of our sales pipeline which means that we can plan with more confidence. Staff find the invoicing and expense management features very easy to use and having everything integrated in one solution has optimised the administration of our business.
Fiona Talwar – Peritect Limited
I have been using Rhino for the past three years. The MTD VAT feature takes minutes to complete and is so easy to use. The wide range of features available help me to run all aspects of my business and it makes it incredible value.
I would recommend Rhino to any small business owner in any sector.
Peter Dean – Small Business Owner, Loughborough
I have been in the restaurant business for over 42 years. It saves on staff cost, staff time, the hassle of getting orders wrong over the phone. Customers love it because they can order the food days in advance without using the telephone. My chefs love it because we can control the flow of orders coming into our restaurant.
Have a look at it, you will not be disappointed.

We provide two simple MTD solutions available in one easy to use App
Most customers select the Bridging (Spreadsheet) feature when they first register an account.
Customers can switch on the RECORD KEEPING features at any time at no additional cost.
Option 1 – Bridging Feature
A simple way to upload your VAT spreadsheet
Option 2 – Record Keeping
Create invoices and track your expenses
This option is simple, quick and requires minimal effort.
We advise customers to select the Bridging (Spreadsheet) option when they first create an account. With this method, most customers can get MTD compliant in approximately 10 minutes. Please refer to the 4 steps outlined below.
This is a very popular option because customers know they have the option to switch on the invoicing and expense features at any time in the future at no additional cost
Setting up any Record Keeping solution will require a little more effort but we do provide free support.
We provide video tutorials embedded within the App and also the option to avail of a free one-to-one online training session with an expert to help setup these features.
We provide this flexibility because we know that small businesses may have other more pressing priorities and may wish to consider using these features sometime in the future.
3 Simple Steps to MTD VAT compliant
The following steps will help you to become MTD VAT compliant with the minimum effort and cost.
Step 1. Create a Rhino Account
You can select the easy to use BRIDGING Feature to upload your VAT spreadsheet OR you can use our RECORD KEEPING features to create Invoices and track your Expenses. Both features are contained in the same product.
Useful Tip: The majority of our customers select the BRIDGING feature to tick the MTD VAT compliance box with the minimum effort knowing that they have the option to adopt the RECORD KEEPING features in the future at no additional cost.
This is a one-off process and takes approximately 3 minutes to complete.
Step 3. Submit your MTD VAT Return
The APP will display your latest VAT status including your Quarterly Submissions. You can make a submission either by loading your VAT spreadsheet to populate the 9-Box VAT form. Alternatively, Rhino will populate the 9-Box VAT form if you have entered Invoices and Expenses into our App.
This is a quarterly process and takes approximately 2 minutes to complete.
