Giving you the support you need for Machine Games Duty
IMPORTANT: You must make an MGD return and pay on time. There are penalties for missing the deadlines.
On the back of your MGD registration document you will find details of the months in which each of your accounting periods ends (four a year) - each accounting period ends on the last day of the month. After the end of each period, you need to make a return and pay what you owe by the last working day before 30 days has elapsed.
HMRC can help you to do this:
If you are an online MGD customer and you have given us your email address we will email you a reminder that your next return is due.
Our online service is quick and easy to use, however if you have chosen to file your returns on paper we will send you one by post at the end of each period. If you think you should have received a paper return but have not done so you should ring the Excise & Customs Helpline straightaway. You can't download a blank paper return from the internet.
