HMRC error - The client and/or agent is not authorised

I get this error when I try to load the obligations page.
I have checked the VAT Number is correct and that I am registered at HMRC with Datadear.
This is the message I get every time I try.
Any suggestions as to what is wrong?

Oops … There has been an unexpected error returned from HMRC. Detailed message from HMRC:

  • The client and/or agent is not authorised.

The message is coming from HMRC and means that your VRN is not authorised. You might need to register again with HMRC or to contact them directly.

I have the similar problem when i click on my name to get the details from HMRC - looks exactly same problem as you had. I’ve been doing vat their old way and this is my first MTD experience.

Get the same The client and/or agent is not authorised.

How did you get sorted?
