What is Making tax Digital (MTD)?

Making Tax Digital (MTD) is a key part of the government’s plans to make it easier for individuals and businesses to get their tax right and keep on top of their affairs as well as transforming HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) into a world leading, digital tax authority.

Who will this effect?

Only businesses with a turnover above the VAT threshold – currently £85,000 – will have to keep digital records and only for VAT purposes

What does this mean for your business?

If you submit VAT manually through the post or online (using the existing Government Gateway tool), you will have to integrate commercial accounting software into your business before  April 2019 as these forms of submissions will no longer be accepted by HMRC.
