Is there an existing implementation of this?
I have been working on a branch to add UK Making Tax Digital
functionality for VAT reporting to LedgerSMB:
Work commitments last year meant that I haven't progressed this for over
a year, but as far as I recall, the interaction with HMRC is complete -
what's missing is the necessary reporting to extract the VAT return
figures from lsmb.
For my own business, I currently extract VAT return figures from lsmb
using a spreadsheet and data from Sales->Search and Purchases->Search.
That works fine for my business, but for a more general solution, I
remember discussing some additions to the schema, such as being able to
flag accounts as being inside or outside the scope of VAT.
In summary, if we can crack extracting the VAT return figures from lsmb,
the functionality to submit this to HMRC is (or at least was) in place.
Since I last tested, they've added mandatory 'fraud prevention headers',
which may need revisiting.
This is still something I'm keen to complete - especially if there is
interest from somebody else.
