  • How do you sign up a SIPP pension scheme for MTD

    I have been submitting a VAT return on my VAT-registered Self-Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) since June 2006. About 3 years ago I attempted to register the SIPP for Making Tax Digital (MTD). However, when I try to register on MTD online, there doesn't appear to be a 'Business Type' category that caters for a SIPP. My SIPP does not have a Unique Tax Reference UTR as it is a pension plan and does not submit a tax return. It does not have a Company Number as it has no Companies House registration. It does have a VAT Registration number and a registration address and postcode and a VAT account. The VAT account shows on my Gateway sign-in as business tax. Despite all of this there is no provision on the online system for enrolling my scheme. I've received a letter from HMRC notifying me that I have to use MTD for accounting from today 1st April 2022 and submit digitally by August 2022 at the latest. Does anyone know how to enroll my scheme so I can do this? Thanks in advance.
