It is important to note that the VT Transaction+ software and your data files (ending in .vtr) are two separate things and must be dealt with separately as shown below.
Do not copy the VT Transaction+ executable file (TranPlus.exe) from the original PC. Instead, download the latest version of the software from VT's website.
If you wish to start using VT Transaction+ on a new PC:
1.Ensure the new PC is compatible by checking the system requirements.
2.Download and install VT Transaction+ on your new PC.
3.Enter your licence key and customer ID by going to Help>Register Software. You will find your licence key and customer ID on your most recent invoice.
4.Transfer the data files (ending in .vtr):
|a) On your old PC, insert a USB memory stick, open your company in VT Transaction+ and choose the File>Backup To Removable Drive command|
|b) On your new PC, insert the USB memory stick, start VT Transaction+ and choose the File>Restore command|
|5.||If you are an agent submitting VAT returns using an agent services account, you will need to grant authority again (as the authorisation code will be stored on your old PC), select MTD and Tax Data>Grant Authority.|
If you have several data files, it may be easier to copy them by dragging them from your Documents folder on the old PC to your memory stick folder, and vice-versa on the new PC.
If you use a cloud-based drive installed on your PC, you can select File>Backup To Any Drive, and then choose your cloud-based drive, which will make a copy of the file to this drive. You can then access the file on your new PC, provided that it also has the same cloud-based drive installed. This avoids the need for a USB memory stick.
