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+ installation file 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 another PC:

1.Ensure the other PC is compatible by checking the system requirements.

2.Download and install VT Transaction+ on the other PC.

3.Enter your licence key and customer ID by going to Help>Register Software. To obtain your licence key, please email with your VT Customer no. and/or postcode to request your up-to-date license key no.

4.Transfer the data files (ending in .vtr):

a)On your original PC, insert a USB memory stick or external hard drive, open your company in VT Transaction+ and choose the File>Backup To Removable Drive command

b)On your other PC, insert the memory stick or hard drive, start VT Transaction+ and choose the File>Restore command

If you have a cloud drive installed on your PC; for step a) you can select File>Backup To Any Drive, and then choose your cloud drive. This 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 a cloud drive from the same cloud storage service installed, signed in to the same account. This avoids the need to use a USB memory stick. (For more information on setting up a cloud-based drive please refer to Setting up a cloud drive).

5.If you are an agent submitting VAT returns using an agent services account, you will need to grant authority again (as the original authorisation code is 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.
