Introduction

There are a number of important things you need to check BEFORE you can connect the App to your MTD VAT Account.

Are you using the correct Rhino Account?

Customers using the Rhino PLAY Account can only view a demo of the MTD VAT Dashboard for illustration purposes only.  Customers will need to upgrade to connect to the App to their MTD VAT Account.

IMPORTANT – You must register for Making Tax Digital

Before you can use any MTD App, customers must first sign up for MTD with HMRC.   To do this, click on the link below, scroll to the bottom of the page and select “Sign Up”.  https://www.gov.uk/vat-record-keeping/sign-up-for-making-tax-digital-for-vat

Important:  It can take up to 72 hours to receive confirmation from HMRC that you have successfully registered for MTD. Our App cannot connect to your MTD Account until HMRC have transferred your VAT Account from the old VAT computer system to the new MTD VAT computer system.

Connecting Rhino to your HMRC MTD Account

This is a one-off process and it should take approximately 1 minute to complete this important step.
