Making Tax Digital

What Is Making Tax Digital?

Making Tax Digital is an initiative due to be introduced by the Government which will affect how businesses and individuals record, maintain and file their taxes with HMRC. This initiative comes into effect from April 2019 and will start with MTD for business above the VAT threshold of £85,000.

All businesses that are above the VAT threshold will be required to use MTD compatible software to keep records of each individual transaction (not summaries) and file their VAT returns digitally. HMRC plans to extend MTD for Income Tax and Corporation Tax from April 2020.
