HMRC have confirmed voluntary de-registration effective 1 September 2022. Attempt to sign up for MTD to file final VAT return failed because company described as de-registered. How do we submit the company's final VAT return?

Please contact our VAT helpline so we can look at alternative ways to accept your figures. For example, a paper or manual return.

VAT: general enquiries

Thank you.

I have the same problem. The old system appeared to accept my VAT return. However I am not convinced HMRC will agree even though it says "return submitted". The enquiry line is impossible to get through - it just said "Sorry, we are too busy. Goodbye" and cut the line.

UPDATE: I got through on the helpline and they confirmed my final return can be submitted through the pre-MTD system (as I cannot register for MTD having de-registered for VAT). They also confirmed the final VAT return I submitted today using the old system has been received successfully, so no paper submission needed. Hope that helps.
