There are upcoming changes in legislation which are expected to affect the majority of Sage 200 Suite customers. From 1 April 2010, HMRC legislation changes dictate that all companies with a turnover of more than £100,000 will have to submit their VAT returns electronically.
To comply with this change in legislation, the Sage 200 2010 release provides a link to the HMRC gateway, allowing users to electronically submit and pay their VAT return online.
Sage 200 2010 is scheduled for release in June, so customers who are affected by the change in legislation may need to submit their initial returns manually via the HMRC government gateway.
Those customers who are affected by the legislation and are not upgrading to Sage 200 2010 i.e. Sage 200 v2009 and below, Sage MMS and Line 100, will need to submit their returns manually via the HMRC government gateway from April onwards.
