Making Tax Digital – Fraud Prevention Headers v3

To prevent fraud, MTD submissions must contain what HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) refer to as fraud prevention header information. HMRC have issued v3 of these requirements and these changes have now been implemented. Therefore, all customers mandated for MTD must upgrade to the latest releases of Opera 3 (2.81.60) and the Scheduler (2.20.60) to remain compliant.

The upgrade will update the MTD file that is sent to HMRC. They will start validating the new v3 headers if the information is missing from the next MTD submission after July 2021. It is not known exactly when HMRC will reject any files that do not have this updated information. All they say is that they can reject your next submission at any point after this date.

This is the third set of Fraud Prevention Headers that HMRC have issued. To our knowledge, they have not yet rejected any files that do not have this information, but again, they can choose to start rejecting these files if they do wish to. Therefore, the safest option is to ensure you are using them, just in case.

Payroll – Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS)

A new set of standard and Excel furlough report designs for May/June and for July to September have been added to handle the extension of the scheme until the end of September 2021. Both reports are available from the EOY/Special Reports – Advanced Pay/Ded List report.
