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.
