Making tax digital

Is there any further news on ERPNext being compatible with the new UK regualtions called making tax digital?

Good day,

Does anyone have an update on this?

If you’re still wondering, check the github ticket above. I’ve started working on a design :wink:

Happy Easter!

Comments are invited on this ERPNext UK Making Tax Digital (MTD) integration complete with VAT return generator..

I posted lots of screenshots so you can get the idea.

I think it will work for us. Will it work for you? What do you need, want, love, like, dislike, hate?

Tech detail & possible snag: There’s still the issue of getting an HMRC Client ID. My working assumption is that, because this is open source, we can’t publish the client credentials. This could mean each end user will need to apply for their own. I’ve started the ball rolling for our company, lets see where we get to. :slight_smile:

I’ve completed a design that will allow integration with ERPNext as a regional module. Comments and support welcome!


How are things progressing with UK VAT/PAYE etc.?

I have been working on functionality to automatically calculate the salary in ERPNext but I have to admit that despite using various ERP systems previously, I am very new to this particular system so have a lot to learn.

Best Regards


Community support has been non-existent, so we will be developing the features as part of a private branch along with other features like Xero import that we’re working on currently. HMRC MTD integration soon to follow.

However, the universal report allowing a UK VAT Return is awaiting integration Here
Donations welcome through our website, support is much appreciated.

That’s a shame.

As a UK user I would be keen to follow these enhancements, and try to offer my input where I can. I have been working on key fields for things in areas such as payroll which calculates things such as income tax, national insurance etc.

My ultimate aim is for my companies to move over to ERPNext at the right time in the future. I have the live and test systems in place now so I have the ability to start the journey.
