Making Tax Digital (MTD)

Introduction to Making Tax Digital
Making Tax Digital 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.

HMRC's ambition is to become one of the most digitally advanced tax administrations in the world. Making Tax Digital is making fundamental changes to the way the tax system works - transforming tax administration so that it is:

  • more effective
  • more efficient
  • easier for taxpayers to get their tax right

Making Tax Digital for VAT
The government have taken a major step forward in this ambition with the introduction of Making Tax Digital for VAT.

VAT-registered businesses with a taxable turnover above the VAT threshold are required to use the Making Tax Digital service to keep records digitally and use software to submit their VAT returns from 1 April 2019.

The exception to this is a small minority of VAT-registered businesses with more complex requirements. As part of planning for the VAT pilot, HMRC continued to engage with stakeholders and listen to their concerns about business readiness for Making Tax Digital. We have made the decision to delay mandation for these customers until 1 October 2019 to ensure there is sufficient time to test the service with them in the pilot before they are mandated to join - see the timeline below.

Carole and her team have been an absolute godsend to me. Having struggled with my paperwork for several years i was putting too much effort into this rather than concentrating on what i am good at (my business). Carole has given me the confidence to work on my company without worrying about the books. Thank you.
