Cirrostratus - strengthening the backbone of the economy

English | Cymraeg | Gàidhlig | Gaeilge | login | for help email: help@vat.directThis is our current pricing model for use of the Making Tax Digital Applications Programming Interface. We have decided to provide free accounts for those people who take part in our pilot scheme. We wish to ensure that our service is not only one of the better services, but also one of the most cost effective. Our provisional pricing scheme is as below.

Cirrostratus MTD - pricing options

These are the pricing options.
    Pricing Options (Prices are plus VAT)
  • Starting 2019 accounts - free - there will be a limit on the number of free accounts, however. Currently the free accounts last until the VAT returns at the end of 2019 (ie 9 months free service as part of the mandatory period). Free account holders will be allowed to subscribe to the 2020 service for 50p per month for the 2020 year (plus VAT) without two factor authentication
  • One off no commitment accounts - £10 per return (plus VAT). Anyone who registers will be able to submit one VAT return for £10 plus VAT. Accounts do not need to be registered before the end of the VAT period.
  • Early Bird Accounts - Free. Our objective is for people who are in a position to submit their VAT return on the first day it can be submitted can do so for no charge - as long as they have registered for an account in advance (and authorised the account). There may be a limit on the number of these accounts. Two Part authentication will have to be through a Telegram Account or Twitter (because we then don't have to pay the costs of the text message or phone call).
  • Early Accounts - £6 plus VAT. People who submit their VAT return in the first two weeks will be charged £6 as long as they have registered for an account before the end of the VAT period (and authorised the account).
  • Loyal Clients - one VAT number quarterly returns - £20 plus VAT per year. Companies that sign up for a year paying in advance will be asked to pay £20 for one VAT number and can submit the returns when they wish (within legal limits of course).
  • Loyal Clients - one VAT number monthly returns - £25 plus VAT per year. Companies that sign up for a year paying in advance will be asked to pay £25 for one VAT number and can submit the returns when they wish (within legal limits of course).
  • Loyal Clients - more than one VAT number - for each additional VAT Number £2 per year. (ie for quarterly 2 is £22, 3 is £24 etc) If you are interested in numbers over 10 (10 is £38 per year) please contact us.
  • Two factor authentication - the above prices exclude two factor authentication. HMRC have said two factor authentication is optional. We continue to maintain the option of two factor authentication, but during the mandatory period will charge £3 more per account per year for two factor authentication. During the pilot period it is free.

Payments

Payments will be through a payment card (debit or credit) in advance.
