Per the MTD VAT notice, HMRC have accepted that recording the totals from the suppliers statement is ok. Again, as long as all the supplies on the statement relate to the same VAT period and total VAT charged is shown on the statement. You may therefore continue to record the totals from the supplier statement, as HMRC recognises that this may cause additional work for businesses capturing the individual invoices and credit notes and also increase the potential risk of error. 

However, it is important that you continue to maintain the individual documents to support the monthly statements with your records.
