Printing to PDF
« on: 10 October, 2018, 12:18:46 PM »
We have not as yet seen any advice from HMRC as to how to maintain the audit trail for digital links to prove compliance.  Our recommendation, therefore, is that businesses print the spreadsheets and files to a PDF format file (Portable Document Format) .  The advantage of this is that it freezes the data at the time the VAT return is submitted.  If that is then kept in a separate folder for each return then it will be easy to demonstrate the audit trail.
