Hi Christopher,

thanks for the gentle prod.  I've been very busy for the last couple of weeks, 
and I apologise for not getting back to you sooner.

so far, the VAT report seems to work for me, I haven't spotted any glaring 
problems, although I appreciate the limitations on the account selections that 
you mention, and I haven't explored deeply with anything other than my normal 

it seems that MTD hasn't gone away (unfortunately) and would be a shame to 
miss the release bundle, although I accept that this is still code which is 
beta-ish in nature, and I don't know the GC policy on including code which may 
still need some polish in a finished release.  However, I would also counter 
that the first real complete test of the workflow has to wait for July and the 
first return being prepared.

best regards,
