HMRC planned downtime

Created on  | Last modified on 


HMRC has advised that due to scheduled maintenance the MTD VAT online services won't be available from 9:30am to 2:30pm on Sunday 20 February 2022. This means you won't be able to submit returns online during this time.


During this time, you will be unable to:

  • Sign up for the service
  • Submit Returns
  • View previous submissions and payment details
  • Set up new or cancel and amend existing direct debits
  • Review and update any business detail
  • Access Agent Services

This and other planned maintenance and upgrade activities are shown on the HMRC service availability and issues page on GOV.UK
