Test Submission to HMRC - Overview

Ftax can be used to send a test submission to HMRC without the submission being processed. If you are a tax agent, this can be used to check the tax return before generating a PDF copy for your client to sign. This guide is broken down into the following sections and explains how to:

  1. Put Ftax into 'Test Submission' mode
  2. Fix Submission Errors
  3. Make the required amendments and submit
  4. Submit 'in Live'
