Set up VAT email reminders in QuickBooks Online

by Intuit Updated 5 months ago

If you’re using the Making Tax Digital (MTD) feature in QuickBooks Online, you can set up email reminders to stay on top of important VAT deadlines. This can help you meet your VAT obligations and avoid any potential penalties.

In this article, we’ll show you how to:

Important to know

  • To set up email reminders, make sure you have set up VAT and MTD in QuickBooks first. 
  • Only primary and company admins can receive reminder emails. 
  • You can only create one set of reminders, which means you can receive up to two email notifications. 
  • If you make changes to a reminder, it will replace the previously created one.
