Making Tax Digital

Dec 19 | 2018

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is an HMRC initiative designed to make sure the UK tax system is effective, efficient and easier for taxpayers.

Making Tax Digital for Business (MTDfB) begins on 1 April, 2019 with MTD for VAT.  From that date, VAT-registered businesses above the threshold of £85K will have to keep digital records and submit VAT returns using compatible software.

Other components of Making Tax Digital, such as income tax and corporation tax, have been placed on hold until April 2020 at the earliest.

The full notice – VAT Notice 700/22: Making Tax Digital for VAT – along with a list of software that will be compatible with MTD for VAT is available at
