How To View Your VAT Certificate Online

This guide will show you how to find, view and download your VAT certificate online

Recently HMRC changed the Valued Added Tax (VAT) portal for the new Making Tax Digital (MTD) scheme. The option to view your VAT certificate was temporarily removed and as a result many are asking “How to view your VAT certificate online?”. There is now a way, HMRC have added this functionality back. We created this guide to show you how to find your VAT certificate on the new MTD portal. This guide replaces the old VAT portal and method of downloading your VAT certificate.
