New platform to notifying HMRC of VAT errors

HMRC have just made available a new way to notify them of errors in VAT returns. The online form will be the default way to flag errors.

This is for all VAT-registered businesses who wish to submit a VAT Error Correction Notice (ECN). Once submitted, a copy of the digital form will be captured into the Digital Mail Service (DMS) and processed as it is currently.

The new form is designed to streamline the current process, making it easier to notify HMRC about errors on VAT returns. It will enable businesses to:

  • Upload supporting documentation.
  • Provide explanatory notes.
  • Save the form allowing them to complete it later.
  • Receive confirmation of submission with a reference number.

It will also serve to reduce mistakes through built-in validation and auto-calculations and capture more complete information. See: Tell HMRC about any errors in your VAT Return – GOV.UK (
