WebService::HMRC Interact with the UK HMRC tax authority Making Tax Digital API

This is a base set of modules used for interacting with the HMRC Making Tax Digital (MTD) and Making Tax Digital for Business (MTDfB) APIs.

HMRC is the UK government tax authority. Their APIs provide a means to submit and query information relating to personal and business tax and customs affairs.

The top-level WebService::HMRC module is a stub bundling the following modules which encapsulate the minimum functionality needed to interact with the HMRC API:

  • WebService::HMRC::Request
  • WebService::HMRC::Response
  • WebService::HMRC::Authenticate

These base modules will normally not be used directly by an application. Instead, applications will generally use a higher-level module which inherits from these classes.

I have written and intend to release separately the following modules which use the base functionality:

  • WebService::HMRC::VAT
  • WebService::HMRC::HelloWorld
  • WebService::HMRC::CreateUser

Further APIs exist for different aspects of personal and company taxation. It is hoped that this base distribution makes it easier to contribute modules for these.
