MAM provides progress update on Making Tax Digital developments

Posted: 20-12-2018

MAM Software's business management applications begin pilot testing

MAM Software is pleased to announce significant progress in its efforts to help customers become compliant with Making Tax Digital (MTD).

MAM Software is listed by HMRC as a supplier with VAT-compatible software in development. Its Autopart and Trader software has been reviewed by HMRC and the company has undertaken two successful live submissions as part of the pilot trials. The Autowork Online software has just completed its HMRC review and will begin live pilot trials imminently.

MAM is also currently developing a 'standalone module' for users of its older Autopart and Trader v20 systems. This is a temporary solution designed to run alongside the existing software and is only available on compatible operating systems (see below). However, for long-term stability, users should consider upgrading to v30 or MAM's relevant online solution.

Software compatibility with MTD

In order to comply with its security requirements, all communications with HMRC must support Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2. Unfortunately, this cannot be achieved on older applications and operating systems. Businesses that are running one of MAM's older solutions should contact MAM Software ASAP to discuss their options for upgrading.
