Activate Making Tax Digital

You will find that the application creates an extra Group called “Making Tax Digital” in the “Home” Ribbon Tab


1 Have a saved Excel File open

For integrity reasons a workbook must have been saved to disk before it can be enabled for Making Tax Digital (MTD). Also for integrity reasons a file can only be used for a single submission which encourages the taking of a snapshot of the records as they were at the time of submission.  

2 Enable the file for MTD

Once saved you can enable the workbook by clicking “Enable Workbook” in the Making Tax Digital Ribbon Group. The software does not limit the number of Workbooks that can be enabled. 

3 Show Activation Screen

Hover over the menu, and select Activate Licence.
