The 'NJT VAT Return Manager (Old Style)' bridging software is an application, within a Microsoft Excel workbook, that provides a quick and secure online filing of the 'Old Style' 9-Box VAT Returns to Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC) legacy system. HMRC normally accepts submissions within 9 seconds. The term 'Old Style' means submission of VAT Returns to the HMRC 'None MTD' legacy system.
This product contains a customised application developed in Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA). The software runs automatically when the workbook is opened and interacts with the user by displaying various User Forms (Windows). The worksheets are not accessed in the traditional way and are therefore hidden from view.
Microsoft Windows: Windows 7 onwards. Both Windows '32-bit' and '64-bit' versions are supported.
Microsoft Excel: Excel 2007 (service pack 3) onwards. Note: only Excel '32-bit' versions are supported.
Plus a reliable internet connection.
