To help your Making Tax Digital submission run smoothly, we've compiled a short list of articles that address the issues Sage customers have reported.
After successfully submitting one of our company’s vat returns, when I tried to do the other one I got an “unexpected error” message when I hit the submit button.
(I have not had any issues submitting via sage on the old system)
When I chatted with someone at sage on line last week, they said it is an error message that is being looking into, It basically says “illegal characters in path”
I need this resolved asap as we have a rather large refund of vat due to us!

If this still fails, creating a new Windows profile has been seen to resolve the problem.

I have submitted the vat return via a different bridging software and it was quick, easy & went straight through no issues. It only cost me £7.50 for the submission, so needless to say I won't be renewing the Sage bolt on!
