  5. Select View.

Under the tab Overview, here for the Submission Information, the Payment Indicator is blank.


The Tax Return is not successfully submitted and accepted by the Tax Authority (HMRC).


The Payment Indicator: (BANK / DD) shows after the return is successfully submitted to the Tax Authority (HMRC). It shows as a response from the Tax Authority after successful submission of the VAT Return. Check with HMRC on the date you are allowed to submit the VAT Return via MTD (Making Tax Digital).
