SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to Test system Only. 
  2. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  3. Click on Overview.
  4. Search and open the UK Making Tax Digital activity.
  5. Enter the VAT Registration Number.
  6. Click on Allow Access. 
  7. You get the error message - Client registration missing; contact administrator.


The HMRC does not provide any sandbox/test system. Hence we suggest you not to configure UK MTD in the Test System as any successful submission carried out in the Test System will result in a live Tax Submission to HMRC.


You can configure the UK Making Tax Digital (MTD) for VAT, directly in the Production system.
