“VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover above the VAT threshold are required to use the Making Tax Digital service to keep records digitally and use software to submit their VAT returns from 1 April 2019.”
There are 2 parts the new regulations, firstly sales invoices, purchases and anything related to the VAT calculation need to be recorded in a software system. Secondly the VAT submission must be done electronically into the HMRC system. Compilators’ products Team 2 and DD5 will be compliant with the new HMRC regulations.
The software satisfies the requirement by recording the information digitally; then when the VAT return is due, an Export file to SAGE or Xero accounting packages satisfies the requirement for electronic submission.
At the exhibition, we’ll present all our new functions and features as well as demonstrating the new generation of Team and DD5 -the enterprise solution.
We’d also like to mention that we are proud sponsors of the event below. Dan Vassallo, UK/IRE Sales Manager says “I personally wish the best of luck to those that have been nominated and that we are proud to support not just our customers but the whole the Irish tyre trade.”

Ever since September 2016, when entering the English and Irish markets, we’ve been developing the next generation of Team. Thanks to a warm welcome and a lot of help from our customers with testing and giving feedback, the launch is just around the corner. We’ve listened to the needs and put in requested functions, e.g. improved performance, nominal and support for multiple depots. We hope that our customers will like the new visual overhaul and the new features. There’s no risk of confusion as the overall setup is the same. Read more in Scots Auto Scene issue 146, page 70.

They have even more pressure on margins and thus has a different approach to purchasing and inventory management. “, Says Anders Paulcén, CEO of Compilator.” In Sweden, on the other hand, we have a high IT maturity and modern systems. We can both learn from each other and together we will become a very strong player in the European market.”
