How to View Your VAT Certificate Online (Making Tax Digital)

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 find my vat registration certificate?”. 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.

You can then download your VAT registration certificate copy. This is an option for any VAT registered business. This will show the VAT registration date and other information.

This quick guide will show you how to get your VAT certificate in seconds:

Step One: You will need your government gateway ID ready, then log into your business tax account here:

Step Two: Scroll down to “Making Tax Digital for VAT” and then click “View Your Account”

Find your VAT account GOV UK

Step Three: You are now in your VAT MTD portal where you can see your VAT registration number. By scrolling down to “View VAT certificate” you can now download your VAT certificate.

Download your VAT Certificate

Step Four: You will now see your VAT certificate with details such as registration date, VAT return dates, bank accounts and business address.

To download or print your VAT certificate click on “Print Certificate” you can either print or download as PDF from your browser.

There you have it, you can now access your VAT certificate on the new Making Tax Digital portal. I recommend saving this as PDF for your records as you never know when you will need it.

Ben and the team and really helpful & knowledgeable. The thought of doing our own accounts is headache educing. Accounts is a part of our business we don't have to worry about and we trust the team to take care of things. Furthermore, they really understand ecommerce accounting and the nuances it involves -do not go to a traditional accountant if you sell online.
