Isle of Man Announces VAT Returns Must be Submitted Online from April 2021 — Orbitax Tax News & Alerts

The Isle of Man Treasury has issued a notice announcing that VAT returns must be submitted online from 1 April 2021.


VAT returns must be submitted online from 1 April 2021

VAT-registered businesses and individuals are reminded that they will be required to submit Value Added Tax (VAT) returns online and make payments electronically from 1 April 2021.

Three-quarters of VAT returns are currently submitted electronically using the Isle of Man Government's online services.

It will become mandatory to submit this way from 1 April to ensure all customers are prepared for the forthcoming introduction of an improved system with greater online functionality.

Customers who are not currently enrolled for VAT online services will automatically receive an activation code with their next VAT return.

Guidance is available at to help customers through the enrolment process, and one-to-one sessions will also be accommodated for those who require additional help.
