As of April 2011 enforceable VAT debts will be managed on the Integrated Debt Management System (IDMS). Moving VAT debts on to IDMS means both Direct and Indirect Tax debts are managed on the same IT system.
Very little of the functionality of IDMS has been changed to accommodate VAT debts. Similarly you will not notice any changes to the VAT Mainframe system except that there is now an interface from the VAT Mainframe to IDMS.
Full IDMS guidance is contained within the IDMS User Guide accessed through the Library.
